My Sentiments Exactly

This is "M-6, Simplicity", an intermediate-level block that I paper-pieced and then used the raw-edge machine buttonhole-stitch method for appliqueing the center piece. Again, the appliqued piece was cut all as one piece of fabric; the placement of the stitching makes it look like 5 separate pieces.

The name of this block is perfect for this time of year. Remember, you (and your family and friends) will enjoy the holiday season much more if you remember to slow down and simplify.

Beautiful block, but was it simple to piece?
