C-5


Difficulty of block: easy (if you like applique)
Number of pieces: 17
Method used: hand piecing, hand applique, reverse applique

Eye of the Cyclone looks difficult, but it was pretty straight forward. Build in three sections: background, circle and frame. I really enjoyed making this one and was happy with the fabric combination. Unfortunately, it looks washed out in the photo.

So Pretty and neat and tidy! I'm terrified of the applique blocks! Your right - the fabric combination is very good.

Your fabrics keep getting better and better. This one turned out fabulous.

Applique. Good choice for constructing the block.
