FWQAL #059 - Night and Day by funkysmama
FWQAL #059 - Night and Day, a photo by funkysmama on Flickr.

Oy, this block was a pain! I actually tried making it before by cutting out the pieces using the provided templates, then paper-piecing, and I just couldn't make it work.

This time, I started with the big triangles, then used oversized scraps for the others, which worked, but required a lot of trimming to be done.

While I was working on it, I kept asking myself whether I shouldn't have just put it in the FWQAL "skip" category, but once I finally finished it up, I was glad I did it. It's such a great graphic block.

See what other folks got up to on their Friday Night on Flickr!


  1. It's a gorgeous block. Worth the effort for it. :)

  2. Hello Jennifer,
    So glad you finished your block , it is impressive.

    Happy days.

  3. I love this! Glad you finished, but I totally understand your frustration! LOL....been there a time or two myself! :)

  4. It's a lovely block,and I like the colors. I don't understand the alphabet soup in the title, though. LOL After FNSI and QAL, I guess I'm not in the know. =)
