I did two versions because I wanted to see how different the block would look using a white background and a black one. Quite different looks. The green and orange one has a refreshing look to it while the fuchsia and purple one is more dramatic I think.
I have to admit next time I should read the instructions a bit more carefully. I looked at the pattern and thought OK a whole bunch of HST and when to it. I didn't bother to read any further since I don't care for her method of doing HST. Only after I'm putting the whole thing together do I realize that the pattern had rectangles with triangles in the corners. So in my block those sections are actually made up of HST.
I also have a request of anyone here who has any tips or tricks of how to cut their squares so that they turn out consistently the same size, could you share that with the group? I'm still having some challenges with getting my squares to come out all the same size all the time. Thanks in advance.
