Difficulty of block: easy
Number of pieces: 49
Method used: hand piecing

I made sure Nan's Naiad was an easy block to piece by eliminating the applique and adding and subtracting seams, all within the top and bottom border pieces.

Just a little applique to go and I will be finished F-11, then on to G-7 and I-13.  I will post them as time allows and hopefully before the end of the year.

You thought L-10 was easy? I've had the worst time with it, especially with those little bitty triangles. How did you do yours? Yours look so good!

I'm pretty sure this is one of the 15 or 18 center blocks that I have left to do. And I'm pretty sure I left it cuz it looked hard.
You've become a very accomplished piecer, Karen. This does NOT look easy to me. Such a lovely, subtle pairing of fabrics.

Your block is very pretty. I guess it looks harder then it actually is.
I love the fabrics.

You are so funny! Those darn teeny tiny miniscule triangles and this is an easy one! LOL Yours are so beautiful you make them look easy! Love it! Can't wait for the rest!

Well, it's not an original thought, but "Easy??"

I thought this little block was rather difficult. Love your colours.

Lovely block. I have been hand piecing my blocks also, you have inspired me to some more.

Paula said...

Ohh Karen this one is so pretty. For me it was a difficult block, I don't have big fingers but these tiny triangles always give me splitting headache LOL

Take care
