Hi there! Week 22 of #52WeeksWithTheQuiltersPlanner is “Nautical Compass” by Tish Stemple of Tish’s Adventures In Wonderland.
I’m posting a Note about this block for one reason only: it is time consuming. Don’t leave this block to the last moment if you are intending to get it completed in time for the prizes. I think it took me about 4 hours (over two nights) to construct this block and it is easily the most labour-intensive block so far this year.
The tutorial is excellent though. Just make sure you trim those little half-square triangles accurately and sew with a scant 1/4″ seam for maximum precision. There isn’t a lot of room for fudging this block. And to be honest, mine is a bit of a mess because I wasn’t particular enough with my trimming and piecing.
