Oh my gosh!!! I can't believe how difficult this one (1) block was to make. I would not have been able to do it without help from Ricki for each and every step! We were in class for four(4) hours and spent at least 2 1/2 - 3 of those hours just working on this one block! Eleana and Kathy were also successful and made beautiful blocks! I am so glad that Ricki insisted we bring our sewing machines to class and not leave until we had at least one (1) block completed.
