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.

Thanks to the FREE programs:
