I thought I'd share my five blocks with you ... actually five and a half ... as a I got carried away with sewing the 2 1/2" squares together!
The X blocks work in progress ...
And my three completed X's ...
I do love how this block works - it is really quite simple to do and so effective.
My two completed 2 1/2" squares blocks and the half one that I got carried away with!
Don't they look lovely and bright (they'd look brighter in daylight too!)
And I've been playing with the little triangle bits left over from the X blocks ...
I do hate to throw any bit of fabric away!
I am loving this sew-along. The pattern is brilliant, and I found myself browsing jelly-rolls earlier and thought how nice it would look in creams and pale beiges ....!
