Quilt Shot Block #24~ Tumbleweed by Eleanor Burns


12" block
Reminds me of the "Card Trick" block.



        I purchased this book back in the 90's. Usually Eleanor's directions and methods are easy.  For some reason I kept messing up.  After 3rd mistake, I finally had to quit, not quilt, for a day and come back the next. This wouldn't be one I'd make an entire quilt.  At least not by this method.  Also, lots of wasted fabric.
