Howdy partner!

Hello there (back to the English accent, after my American drawl for the subject title)

Today's block is called The Yankee Puzzle. I've no idea why, as I don't recall hearing Kaye explain it in the Craftsy video for the 'Re-piecing the past' class I'm doing.

Yet again, it's pushing my boundaries further, step by step, which is a good way to develop. No issues with the Flying geese this time and I'm getting adept at sewing through several in a row, which makes it quite an efficient process. I also use the 'material scrap' method, where you always end stitching on a small remnant of fabric, so that you don't have to cut thread so often. It's meant to save thread but I'm having issues with my feed-dogs, so I'm not convinced I'm saving much at the minute but at least I'm learning good techniques.

Only one more block to go before I can get started on making the large cushion cover I'm using four blocks in. The next one is called The Temperance block.

Take care out there
