Inset seams are finally starting to get easier. I just pinned and sewed more, and fussed and fretted less, and soon "Mouse" was complete. I thought it would be more difficult than Tinker Toy, but it was actually easier. Paper-piecing certainly makes it much more straight-forward. I am now much less worried about completing the harlequin blocks of my Harlequin-Johnny.
I really like how the fussy cutting on this block turned out. I think the little spirals add lots of visual interest. One of the things I love about batiks is that you can often change the whole look of the fabric with judicious planning and careful cutting. I will be reusing many fabrics in my Dear Jane, so I am planning to take advantage of the fluid nature of my batiks.
