I decided to make this block with stripes after seeing another block, and it turned out great! I didn't realize how much more brain power you need to make sure you are aligning the stripes correctly. I think the effect is worth it.
The fabric is from the shop hop of 2008. I bought the fabric from the Hand Maden, a cute shop in Pacific Grove. I bought a half yard, and neither end said who make the fabric. Freezer paper pieced, for more accuracy. I just realized that those points didn't match up quite right. Oh well, it's finished. A bit wonky.
