Anxieties Block

March 01, 2010 8 Comments

Hello I can honestly say I know why this block is called Anxieties. This block has been a bit of a challenge, I am pleased to have this one finished. Foundation piecing is the only way to go with this one. Here is a picture of my Anxieties block. I have also finnished Conscript Law. This block was a little tricky also, you had to be aware of placement with all the little pieces. I found that numbering each section helps. Here is the picture of my finished block. I now have another 117 blocks to make, but whose counting. Is anyone else making this lovely quilt? , I would love to hear from you. Sharon

Hi Sharon…thats a lovely block…must have taken a while to make. I have never been too crash hot with foundation piecing, but I love to see things people make using that method.

Oh my gosh, it gives me a headache to think of making it, no wonder it’s called anxieties. I think I would have a panic attack, so no I’m not making it. I hope the next 117 blocks aren’t anxious too!!!! LOL!

You’ll be glad to know they are not all that intense. I think I am getting hooked on tiny pieces. LOL

The border for my Feathered Star Quilt are pieced blocks, using neutral fabrics with applique on top. Because the feathered star blocks use many fabrics, placing a single printed light background fabric under the applique would just stand out too much. Take a look at my process for mixing up the fabrics in the applique borders.
