Pine Burr Block for Dearest Boy

A not so easy block this time for "Dearest Boy".  The block size will be a finished 10 inch once I trim it.  I chose to hand piece the block and in the end, it did not lay completely flat even with steam pressing.  And the background edges curved in.  I had printed out an Electric Quilt version of the pattern which I ended up not using and went with the one in the pattern book.  I am wondering if I mistakenly traced the Electric Quilt pattrn for the outer background pieces instead of the one from the book.  Anyhow, I decided just to applique the Pine Burr section to a background square and go with it as is.  Cathy said her block went together okay by using freezer paper templates and machine piecing.  Julie has chosen to do a different block design.


Now on to the next block which is an applique design.  I need to have it ready for sharing on January 30th.

There are many ways to achieve the same end. It looks really nice, Karen. I love Pine Burr patterns--including your design in a magazine years ago.
