Barn Dance is the name of this quilt block and it is part of the calendar quilt that I started last January. I was able to do a block a month for about six months and then I got too busy with other things. When I went to a quilt retreat in October, I took the cut out pieces with me and sewed them together with the help of a friend. When I finished, the block didn't lay flat and was a mess. This week since I was snowed in, I decided to take the block apart, recut the pattern, remark the pieces and sew it together again. It took me several days to get all of this completed but now I'm pleased with this block and will continue making the quilt. My next block will be an applique block I think rather than a pieced one.
