Nearly Insane Block 42 & 42ish

The top block is made the way I meant it to. The bottom one was supposed to be exactly the same until I ran out of the darker red fabric. DOH!!! I found a decent match but then I sewed it wrong. DOH!!! Each 6" block has 120 pieces. INSANE!!

Insane indeed!!!

How in the name of cotton do you deal with the accumulated seam bulk?

Maybe its not a problem for you, because those are absolutely beautiful! I'm puzzled about how it works, but also positively in awe! Wow! And you did it TWICE!!

Going to go pick my jaw up and go to bed now....

YIKES - my eyes went nearly INSANE just enlarging the photo to take a closer look!! How on earth did your eyes manage these fabrics together? You're a better person than I am....LOL

Doh!!! 120 pieces is indeed insane. And in a 6" block? Whoa. On the bright side, both blocks look gorgeous (if a little different). :)

OMG!! I love 42 and "ish". Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm too old to have another child so I'm gonna give you Bryan. He's tall, can change lightbulbs without using a ladder . . . . .

Love it! :)
