Tiny Tuesday - Bride's Stairway

 Some blocks just make you stare, scratch your head and wonder.  I'd been looking at this one for quite a while before its number came up wondering just one thing -- WHY?
In the end, I tackled it just like so many other things.  Take a deep breath and start with step one.  So I cut 16 blue rectangles at 7/8 x 1 3/4 inches.  Seriously?  Even better, the next step was 32 triangles from 1 5/8 inch squares cut into fourths.  OK.  Next, line up all the little bits and sew them together.  It wasn't so bad in the end, though I will admit to sewing one corner on the wrong way before figuring it out.  I won't call it perfect, but I will say I am glad to cross it off the list.

It is a cute block - worth the effort! It can be so tricky using such teeny tiny pieces.

Hmmm! You are dedicated, I'll give you that! My teacher asked me today what quilt pattern you were using; of course I had no idea! She's making Nearly Insane!
