Block 40

A simpler block for this week.  (A chance for us to catch up if needed. :)  Here is everything set out and ready to go.

Here the first square-in-a-square has been completed and the posts for the outer border have been attached.

The next square-in-a-square, and the next one...

And now the outer border to finish our next block.

Block 28

This was another fun block to do.

Here is everything set out and ready to go.  The small stack of blocks at the top of the picture is for 1/2-square triangles.

Here I've done the centre square-in-a-square, the outer triangles, and the 1/2-square triangles have been set out.

Now the centre square-in-a-square becomes the centre for the next square-in-a-square.  Also the squares for the next two borders have been assembled.

Now the first border has been added.  (I love how this centre looks)

And the next border...

And finally the outer triangles to make our next block.

Block 23

A fun block this week.

Here is everything ready to go.  The first thing I did was lots of square-in-a-square blocks. 

Here is everything set out with the square-in-a-square blocks done.

Now I've added the red strips.

Then added the remaining red strips to the middle strip and the white corners for the outer strips.  Then I put the three strips together.

Then added the corner pieces.

Then I trimmed it up into a square.  And our next block is done!
