Block 97

It appears that things will be a little crazy for a while longer.  For the next couple of weeks I'm still doing blocks but they may not be posted on Sunday.

Another edge piece for us this week.  Once again, there are two ways to make the block.  Either make a square and cut it in half diagonally, or include that extra seam allowance by making two triangles.

First, the square....

Here is everything cut, laid out, and ready to go.

In this shot, I've added the triangles to the corner squares, attached the posts in the middle border, and completed the centre square-in-a-square.

Here I've attached the middle border.

And finally, another square-in-a-square completes the block!

For this one, I switched the values up a little and have medium where the light was in the previous block.

Here everything is cut and ready to go.

I've made the centre flying geese, attached the posts to the middle border, and attached the triangles in the outer border.

Now I've attached the middle border.

And finally the outer border.

Which ever way you prefer to make the edges, we have another block completed.
