The last two weeks have gone by in a flash, full of work and travel and family stuff. I've hardly had time to sew more blocks, so there's not much progress to report. I have 1/4 of the blocks needed on the design wall, and I am aiming to finish 20 a day for the rest of this week. That will see me to the halfway mark, and I'll be happy with that.
This is today's 20 blocks, waiting to be completed. It's not much, but every little bit counts.
It's a great help being able to cut 216 triangles, enough for 54 blocks in about 5 minutes. That leaves more time for actual sewing.
The photo in the book shows that those little hourglass blocks were made of two fabrics; the maker may have made those first, and used them to join the hexagons, rather than making a rectangular block as I'm doing. It would take too much planning for me to do that, but I do like the look of it.
