Watch Those Angles

This is "M-11, Rickshaw", an advanced-level paper-pieced block. It's not all that difficult, but you do have to take things slowly and watch all the angles. Be sure to cut your fabric pieces large enough for each section, and then be careful matching the seams when sewing the sections together. Mine isn't perfect, but it's better and took less time than one of the first blocks I made with diamonds.

I am glad you said "advanced" because I looked at it and thought the same word.
wonderful details that it gives and I like the colour choices too.
Kind of thinking st patrick's day

don't you just love that blueish/green fabric - I have a piece of it somewhere too and just love it so I got it in a pink and a pale blue also. That one is something else for hand piecing too.
