This is her finished block:
The block appeals to be because of the fabric choices but also because the tutorial seems to produce beautiful seemingly difficult blocks with relatively little complication (aka no cutting triangles!).
I selected some Riley Blake fabric from my stash and got to work:
|The initial slicing was not as straight as I would have liked. I will need to practice that.|
|Results after first cut.|
|Selected a piece for the outer edge.|
And the results of my experiment:
After slicing it to make the edges even (I went to a 10" square slice) some of my inner triangles got their tips sliced off. I think my very hasty measurements (since I was just experimenting, after all) were the cause of this problem. I think the block is pretty neat but not quite as easy as it seems.
My mind is working hard thinking of all the ways I could use this block. Maybe for the upcoming baby in my group of friends?
