Italian Tile - Wisconsin Quilt Blocks on Barns, Block of the Week

Just got my butt whooped by a 6.5" quilt block. Dang, only spent the last 4hrs on it. And it didnt turn out the way I wanted it too. Oh well.. Its not perfect, and nor am I!

WOW! Im grateful to have learned Y seams - actually, I enjoyed doing them. But my block didnt seem to show the affects of the enjoyment I had making this block. Cause honestly, it pissed me off in the end. LOL So, I got out my little seam ripper, and well, performed minor surgery in the middle. And.. dang it, I should have left it the way it was. Which is my own darn fault.

But, as they say - you always have to start somewhere, and the Y seams werent that hard to do.

Im almost embarassed to show the block... here it goes... it wont hurt my feelings if no one leaves a comment.. LOL

Hi Kim, as I only do cross-stitch I think your very talented and I can't see anything wrong with your quilt.It's not something I could even think about trying, so well done!!!!

I think it looks just fine!! You do realize there's a REASON I first did it without y-seams and then with right? It's because my first try looked like shit!

I've noticed too, sometimes when you're working with that many pieces and paper piecing, you really have to pick and choose what you rip. 9 times out of 10 if I rip, and re-sew, the result looks worse than if I had just left it be.
