C-13


Difficulty of block: easy
Number of pieces: 21
Method used: hand piecing

I just love the original Lakota Sioux block, a simple design with excellent fabric.  And, it introduces a third fabric to the block.  Sadly, Brenda's redraft (in the book) was missing the four corner blocks for which the third fabric is used.

Just add four corner blocks was my plan, but it wasn't going to be that easy.  Brenda also adjusted the size of the inner border and made it two sizes, so the corner blocks would also be two different sizes.  Bummer, bummer, bummer!  So as you can see I left well enough alone.

I dont know where you find this gorgeous fabric. You have a great eye for color.

great block - your blocks are soooooo well done. I started a DJ in 2004, without much experience - it was horrible! Not the trip, I enjoyed the trip, but there was no way that my 66 blocks were ever going to fit to be a nice quilt. I have thrown them away. Maybe one day, when I am brave, I will start again. You're certainly an inspiration.

Fabric choices and fussy cutting to enhance their look is incredible!

Love your fabric choices and the fussy cut in the middle. I'm about to start making this block myself and wanted to see what you had done about the blue corners. Hmmm.
