Finally some pictures of the first few blocks I have made for the quilt-along. As I mentioned yesterday, I have redrafted some of the blocks to have only squares and HST (half square triangles) to cut as much as possible. I am also showing here how I have made my blocks if anyone is interested!
First Block  Attic Window
I made this block as a nine-patch cutting only 2 sizes of squares, one for the nine-patch squares and one for the HST
Second Block  Autumn Tints
For this one I did cut strips for the 4-patch units and 2 big squares. I pieced the strips together 2 by 2
Third Block  Basket Weave
I did cut 3 long strips for this block and pieced them together
Fourth Block  Box
Like for block # 1, I did cut 2 sizes of squares for this block, one square for the 9-patch unit and 4 bigger squares of each fabric for the HST units.
Fifth Block  Bowtie
For this block I cut 2 big squares of 2 fabrics and 2 smaller squares of the brown fabric for the HST units. I then cut my HST in half along the diagonal, which was a mistake as I then had to work out how to cut the corner off the bigger squares and of course, I did cut the first one to big! I should have kept my (HST) brown squares and sew them onto 2 of the bigger squares before slicing the corner off.
These are all my blocks to date, 5 made - 106 more to go!
See you soon,
