Block 69

A slightly simpler block after our doozy last week.

Here are all the pieces set out and ready to go.

First I did the log cabin blocks, and attached the red strips.

Then I started working on the triangles in the centre. First I created little rows with the triangles and log cabin blocks.

Then attached them to create the middle strip.

And finally added the outer corners. And, per usual, I didn't cut the funny pieces (I like to avoid templates) instead I made them regular triangles and rectangles. This is the block untrimmed.

Here is the block trimmed. (Looks pretty different, doesn't it?)

And, now our first block of the new year is done!
