This block would be a block that my mother would choose. It has a lot of pieces, you have to get the fabrics in just the right place, and all those pieces had better line up right or you aren't going to have a nice looking block. My mom always challenged us when we were growing up. She always did it in a loving way, but she would never let us just give up or settle.
I'm pretty sure if my mom had let me quit I wouldn't be on block 143 of 366 right now. It would have been easier to quit on the nights I'm tired or the block is a difficult one. I can always hear her telling me to just try one more time. I think tomorrow I will thank my mom for being the mom she is and was when we were growing up. :) This is a 12-inch block. Happy Stitching!! --Kristen
