Moccasin Block of the Month [2]

Well this BOM is going better than some others... it's month two and I have made the block during the month! I've got this far before - next month will be the real test of it!

Curves this month, but just one block, rather than two.

I love how this turned out. I did my curves following Leanne's curves video. I've used this in the past and it is brilliant, but it had been a while since I've sewn a curve so I needed a refresher. I didn't use a single pin on the curves and my mothe-in-law declared she hated me - so Linda, if you read this, follow the link above to learn the secret for yourself!

Whilst curves were conquered, basic piecing was more an issue - spot the deliberate mistake...which I kind of like and won't be fixing!

Lovely block: blocks are like people: they can be contrary sometimes!
Thanks for the link to the Drunkard's Path video. I have only ever done DP blocks by hand with lots of pins (and injuries)! I'm now itching to try this method.
