Block number/name: L-10 “Nan’s Naiad”
Date completed: October 1, 2010
Number of pieces: 45
Notes on block: This block was definitely a challenge. Inset seams, bias edges, tiny little appliqué triangles... It didn’t help that I also pieced in the inner parallelograms the wrong way and didn’t even realize it until I had already completed the entire center section. I wasn’t about to go back and re-do it all, so I left them, and let the iron help me press them into submission. Astoundingly, that actually worked. In the end, this a pretty darn cool-looking block.
Can you even believe I only have 5 blocks left to make in the center? It kind of blows my mind.
