|Young Man's Fancy quilt block|
She says this "quilt requires more than usual amount of work but the alternation of color is most effective." I agree with her assessment that this is a hard block to make. It has 75 pieces!!
That's some pretty tiny pieces in a 6 inch block! But, I paper pieced it and it went together quite easily. It's a great one to use up little scraps.
The photo below shows how to finish the piecing by creating rows.
The templates can be found here.
1. Iron the seams of the little nine patch rows open.
2. Starching your fabric will make it easier to handle the small pieces.
3. Color your diagram to make fabric placement easier.
Here are the blocks for the week-
