Block 82

This week's block isn't really conducive to setting out, so here are all the pieces ready to go. The large heart square with the white squares are for the flying geese. Then I did the first square-in-a-square using all squares. Then the remaining square-in-a-squares were done using triangles.

Now, the block is finally set out! :) I've done the flying geese and the first square-in-a-square.

Now the second square-in-a-square has been done. Plus the corner posts in the outside border have been added.

Now the final square-in-a-square.

And, with the final seams connected. We've got our next block!

Block 78

A much simpler block after those doozies we've had over the past couple of weeks. (I figure we can use the mid-winter break in our Nearly Insane blocks too. :)

Here is everything set out and ready to go.

I just started putting the squares together. Doing everything I could in a single pass.

Here is the next pass.

And finally, the middle strip attached and our block was done. (Enjoy a more restful week)

Block 8

Another block that I apparently dived right into. Sorry.

I've completed the 1/2 square triangles and the centre square.

The centre was assembled as a 9-patch. Plus, I started working on the strips for the outer borders. You'll notice that I started assembling the middle borders together instead of the longer strip. I was running into my curved stripes problem again. I found it easier to do things this way with the small pieces.

Here is the centre of the block completed and the remaining borders ready to add.

Middle border added.

Outer border added and another block complete!
