|This is a fun block to make, check out Leah Day's site for piecing. When cutting out the black and orange squares to start the block, I discovered I had material left over. So what do you do with extra fabric, make more blocks. I was able to get two more blocks out of the strips I cut.|
|Getting better at matching up those corner seams.|
|Curved lines. The other sections will have same quilting. I'll be practicing this without the lines. Should be interesting.|
|A spiral and pebbles. Same here, a lot of practicing without lines.|
|Lines and zig-zags.|
|The two extra blocks I decided to do something different. Cut the block into thirds, then turned the middle straight pieces to form a new block.|
|Sewn back together. I till have enough block to make the eight inch square in the middle for marking.|
|Somehow this one came out different. I think I forgot to turn a couple straight pieces.|
|Before and after.|
|Marking the blocks.|
Can't wait to show the quilting on these pieces. With all the extra blocks I am making, my husband's quilt is going to be a bit larger than originally planned.
After piecing three blocks in a row, I'm ready for the next step..free motion quilting.
