Work in Progress…Thursday!

2017-09-07 13.25.28Hey, Pam posted early this week, so I’ll take the late spot!  I’ve had a great time working on these donation blocks for Kat’s Covered in Love block drive.  You have all of September and October, so there’s lots of time to get involved.  Aren’t the colors beautiful?  And these 18 blocks used 144 of my 3.5″ squares!  (No, you can’t see a difference in the bins…!)

2017-09-07 13.24.04I recommend pressing all your HST seams open.  That makes it easier to see the intersections and reduces bulk.

2017-09-07 13.23.45After those were made, I just laid all the patches out and chain-pieced them.  After a few, I was down to nine minutes each.  Quick, and no pins!  My kind of block!

2017-09-07 14.33.07I’m stopping at 18 blocks, but it’s been a fun break in the large, heavy stuff.  Next up:  a back for Layer Cake Explosion.

Hope you’re making progress!
