I finally completed my Wyoming Valley block this afternoon. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it. Guess it's still too fresh in my mind. I did not stray too far from the original pattern in cutting, sewing and layout.
Because my main reason for doing this weekly thing is to practice triangles and other complex shapes, I did half square triangles for the chevrons (and also because I already had a whole pile of 3in. squares of that fabric which were perfect for the half square triangles). So the whole thing, except for the corner squares, is done in triangles! It took everything out of me - including about 3 hours of my time! Way too long for me to spend on one block! It turned out okay, but I doubt if I will ever do this one again.
