Alaska Block #5 and RSC20 Country Charmer from Quilts....etc.

I was busy yesterday and all four blocks of #5 done for the quilt Alaska.  It really helps to lay your block out I think next to the sewing machine when there are more than a couple pieces to sew.  In Edyta’s directions she breaks the block up into segments to show you what is […]
