My Nemesis

I'm curious. Has anyone else done this block yet? Are you having trouble with it? It just about drove me crazy! The instructions on the quilter's cache did not work for me. I spent a couple of hours on this thing last night and all I got for my efforts were units that were too small, a crooked block and a broken finger nail!
This morning I tried it again, but used my own measurements this time. It worked out okay. The block measures 8 and 1/2 inches, so I guess it's right. But I am not exactly sane anymore!

your block looks great HEtty! I haven't tried it yet, but this is one I really do want to do.... but I'm forewarned, do it when ready to spend time and think!

I'm not sure ANY of us are still (if ever) sane, Hetty! The block is quite nice - especially the beautiful green/blue Batik in the center of the snowball. Thanks for the forwarning, though - a bit more challenging than it looks.

No I haven't tried this one, yet. Started cleaning my sewing room and it may be a few days.... but yours looks great!

It looks great to me! But I will say it sure doesn't look easy. I'm going to try it today so thanks for the warning.
