I sewed up Block 3 of Pam Buda's Pocket Patchwork sew along.
Pam used 16 different lights and darks for her block, but I used 2 each of 8 fabrics instead. I started by making 16 oversized half square triangles, and then trimmed them down to 1 1/2 in size.
To help reduce bulk, I constructed the block in quadrants, instead of rows:
and rotated the seam intersections wherever possible.
Here are the 3 blocks we have made so far:
On a completely different note...
I went to JoAnn's fabrics yesterday to pick up some needles. I saw that they had all Christmas decor at 90% off, so of course I had to nosy around a bit. I was surprised to see that they still had a few of the houses from their Christmas village series.
Perhaps these were passed over because they actually have "JoAnn's Fabric and Crafts" printed above the door. But have a look inside:
Bolts of fabric at the cutting table!
The price on the corner of the box says $49.99. But at 90% off it was only 5 dollars, so home it came. I won't even take it out of the box until next Christmas, but it will sure be fun to unpack it next year.
