I made it!
I’m keeping to my goal of 10 blocks per month, and that makes this my halfway point!
Blocks 48, 49, and 50!
(Aside from being halfway done, I also made it past #50, also known as the 6″ block with 30 freaking pieces.)
Purples and the teeniest bit of leftover blue from binding Meow Mix, as well as some horses from Fox Field.
Simple grey triangles, also leftover from Meow Mix, floating in a see of green- the green is my fave print from The Birds and The Bees.
And finally, Block #50:
Block #50 went together much more easily than I anticipated. Truly. Except for one minor issue- my fabric choices didn’t work at all. They looked great up close, but as soon as you got more than 5 feet away, the block turned into a blob, and might has well have been cut from one piece of fabric as from 30. I despaired. I didn’t want to start it over, what with all those little bitty triangles, but really, I needed to. What was the point of making the most fiddly block in the book if no one could see my hard work? So I started from scratch, and ended up with this fabric combo. I saved the first block. Maybe it will be part of the back, or a label, or something, someday.
50 blocks! I think Tula must have put 50 where she did in the book just for folks like me- the toughest block signaling the halfway point…
