C-11


Difficulty of block: easy
Number of pieces: 5
Method used: hand piecing, hand applique

By eliminating 7 pieces, I made Soldiers and Sailors Monument more like the original block.  In the book, four extra seams were added to the border and the center also increased by four additional seams.  I prefer the original way, as it doesn't look as choppy.

This has to be my favorite block yet. What on earth is that fabric?

Applique was definitely the way to go on this block. I had not visited this blog for a bit. Nice seeing all the newly finished blocks.
