100 Blocks Magazine!

I've designed a block that will be featured in the next 100 Blocks Magazine from Quiltmaker.  This is actually the fifth time I have designed a block for their magazine....  Here's a sneak peak~

Look for Volume 11.  Page 40.

I stripped pieced the block, but they wrote the instructions using foundation paper piecing.  
My way is much easier, but they make the directions, not me....

Look for this magazine soon.....
Want to see other blocks I have designed?

I have been featured in Volume 1, 3, 5, 7, and now 11.
