Heather - Week 4

For the week 4 block I decided to stay with the bright colors.

I did this a bit differently than the directions said. I made 2.5" by 6.5" black and white rectangles for the sides and added red triangles to them instead of piecing them all in squares. That made it go faster.

good idea on the b/w rectangles. I find the instructions given aren't always the best way.

It looks great. I like your idea of the rectangles with triangles attached to them. Great idea. I love this group. Everyone has such great ideas!

What a great idea and a really neat looking block. I must save these instructions.

good idea re the corner rectangles... fewer seams to deal with :-)

You are such a smarty. I really like how your block turned out.

Great idea to alter the pattern. Same effect, less stitching. Love the red.

A very cheery block and a neat idea to make rectangles and save on a bunch of stitching.
