D-12


Difficulty of block: moderate
Number of pieces: 19
Method used: hand piecing

I think Crossed Swords has become one of my top ten favourites.  Originally the swords may have been appliqued.  It's hard to tell for sure.  I decided to try and piece it all.  My concern was the four squares in the corners and stitching around the sharp curve.  It was a little tricky and not as sharp a corner as it should be, but I can live with it.

Absolutely gorgeous, I like how the lines in the red fabric flows through. You sure know how to use a fabric.
