Difficulty of block: easy
Number of pieces: 17
Method used: hand piecing, hand applique

It appears that the original Parcheesi block was all hand appliqued, but I thought it was a perfect block to hand piece, except for the melons.  All I had to do was run a seam line from square to square (where the melons go) and I was left with 13 straight edged pieces to stitch together.

Easy? That sure doesn't appear easy at all. Great job and as usual, great fabrics as well.

I have tried to leave comments before.
I am yet another person who checks every monday morning to what you have done each week, thank you for your weekly inspiration, I have done 78 squares so far.
We have formed our own little Dear jane group here in the UK.
Once again thank you for your constant inspiration

I love it! Yes, it was a LOT easier than it looked!! I am a beginner and did rather well on this block!!

Wonderful fabrics with these bold colors. Love it.
As you've made so many blocks, I don't think any of them are going to slow you down. You've found a way to ease through even the most challenging ones.

Those are some fabulous fabrics! Very bold. And I love your approach to this block. Smart!
