A-2

Wow, this took a long time to make! (And waiting until this morning to do it didn't help.)
It's not a hard block - just time consuming, so set aside a couple of hours for this one.

Here's how it came by it's name:
"This block name came from the way the blocks were originally identified – by number, as 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, 13-5, 13-6, etc. This particular block was 1-2 and "buckle my shoe" just followed." Now I have to go see what 3-4 is called...

You may notice that I'm not going completely random here. I figured it was time for us to sew a little section of this quilt together.

Once again, a foundation pieced block.
Numbering:

Foundation piece the sections, making sure to leave exactly ¼" seam all the way around each section.

Attach the two center sections, lining up the seams carefully.

Complete the block by sewing together the five long strips.
