This block was nice and easy. I used fabric I got from Back Porch Fabrics on the shop hop last year. Paper pieced using freezer paper. Points aren't perfect, but good enough for me. I think it's more obvious because there is so much contrast between the two fabrics.
I played piano, and a little guitar in college, but I never studied another string instrument. I almost wish I had, especially after watching Nodame Cantabile (a Japanese drama about an orchestra). On our trip to Maui, we stopped by the Costco and bought a ukulele. I think it's time to start learning how to play!
