      thank you all for your comments. i appreciate all of the support. i was worried that the block might be too simple with just 11 seams but i didn't want to add anything else to complicate it.
      Leila i'm so glad you like it :)

      Wonderful Melinda! I had pretty much the same shape in my head for this, I love how you have done it, the curves, the print size, and the running stitch detail. Simplicity is everything!
