Rebecca's Foot Stool Block



I ended up doing another scrappy red, white and blue.  Not very troublesome, but those hour glass units are really small!  

Here is a photo of the back of the block.  Did anyone have
 trouble with the seams going in the "wrong" direction?  I fix
 this by just clipping the seam so it goes in the right direction.  Also I do alot of pinwheeling where the units meet, and my blocks are usually very flat.

I love how "fun" your block feels by using a variety of scrappy colours and while they're carefully placed for balance they do encourage eye movement...

Good tips re: making your blocks flat. THanks.

I like the placement of the red and blue squares in the center section.

I love the scrappy colours of your blocks. Wish I had read about the seams earlier though. Thanks for sharing.
