Can you believe it? We've just passed the halfway mark! I'm working on a giveaway but be warned: the big prize will go to someone who has their entire top section (or at least all the blocks) completed.

A little bit of foundation piecing to celebrate us passing halfway.
This block is the only block I could find that uses two different fabrics.

Print or trace the block diagram onto foundation paper, number and cut out as in the photo.

Foundation piece all the numbered sections and trim their seam allowances to 1/4". Cut the unnumbered triangles out of fabric, remembering to add 1/4" seam allowance to them as well. I ironed them onto freezer paper to stabilize them and make it easier to cut the seam allowance.

Sew the shorter pieced strips to the sides of the center section.

Sew the longer pieced strips to the other two sides.

Sew the triangles with the "chopped off" corners onto the block.

Attach the other two triangles.

A couple of corners got cut off, but all in all not bad.


  1. Gorgeous!!! I better work on getting all caught up now too! :)

  2. Not bad at all! I'm keeping these post for when I get back to my quilt and I'm so thankful you are doing them!
