Here is the line up so far... Below is block #3 the Churn Dash. (For some reason, my brain wants to call this the Dash and Churn in the worst way??) I was scared of breaking into creating triangles and rightfully so. ;) It was a little out of my comfort zone, but that is why it is called a challenge. Anyways, that is what I kept telling myself! Upon completion, I felt like I had won a major victory. ** Sorry Mr. Harshbarger for ever saying that Geometry would never have a place in my life. Where ever he is today, he can look at this apology as a personal victory! ;)
So then Leila wanted to inspire us to broaden our horizons and create a block of our own design. This was considered a bonus block. Bonus block... sounds like more work to me! LOL As you can see, my mind was focused on mastering those darn triangles!
Block #4 was the Pinwheel. The triangles were a little more of a pain for me than usual. I am sure the fact that I was pressed for time didn't help. This one will probably get redone when time allows. There are a few seams that are off, and it is really bugging me... Grrrrrr!
Block #5 the Arizona was posted, and I thought, "Leila has lost her mind! Could she possibly throw in a few more triangles??? Yikes!" Now you can see why I hadn't the time to redo the Pinwheels. LOL I thought I would never be done with trimming. But in the end, the result was worth it. It is a beautiful block, and I am proud to say that I created it. :)
In fear for her life, Leila posted an easier block with #6 the Bow Tie. Bless you for this one! I had just gotten back from vacation with three (#'s 4-6) cut blocks ready to be sewn together. The need was great for the last of the three to go smoothly. This was a fun block and very versatile. And I am not just saying that due to the fact that it came together fast! ;)
