I decided to make a block for Quiltstory’s Block Party.

A modern block using paper piecing techniques.

    This looks like such a fun block. It reminds me of a clock. So it feels familar, yet refreshing and new. Good luck to you!

    I’ll give you close ups of my Tree Quilt if you show us how to do that (above)?

    Best, Susan
