It took me awhile to get started on this block. Perhaps the thought of 52 pieces stopped me. Also, after not exactly loving my fabric choices from last week, I was nervous choosing the print for this week. I knew I wanted blue, so I grabbed this thrifted sheet from my stash and cut it up... Looking at it now, perhaps I should have went with a darker shade, but with a black-based sashing around it, I think it will pop a lot more!
That's right. 52 pieces. And I survived! It was actually a pretty fun block to make. The instructions over at Why Not Sew? (the "leader" of the Hand-Pieced Quilt-A-Long) said to trim the half-square triangles once they were sewn together. I chose not to do that (I believe lazy is the word to describe me sometimes). I still turned into a 6" square - 6.5" with seam allowances of course :)
