Do You Get Fussy?

As I looked at Vicki Welsh’s blog posts about an online block party she’s in, I realized again how much a block can be transformed from OK to amazing with fussy cutting.  Here’s some examples of Vicki’s fussy cutting using Paula Nadelstern’s puzzle block technique, and using some of her own shibori hand dyes.

And maybe I’ll get back to my Paula Nadelstern workshop materials.  Now where did I put that fabric I bought for my puzzle blocks?  It’s probably with the workshop’s handouts, wherever they are.
