and five, six, seven, eight...

no...not counting down a jazz tune....

...just showing off the products of my morning sewing session.

Movie background noise of choice: Transformers

Block 5: Pinapple.

I didn't keep track of the total time for this block, but I was working on both #5 and #6 (below) simultaneously and it took all of Horton Hears a Who and 3/4 of Transformers. In other words: a BUTT-LOAD of time! :0)

Block 6: Palm


Block 7: At the Depot

Thank GOODNESS this block didn't require paper-piecing. These "normal" blocks will help me keep my sanity throughout this project...

...to make piecing the corners a bit more exact (afterall one lil' bit "off" and these TINY blocks go kiddy-wompas!), I pulled out my EasyAngle ruler to trim off the lil' corners.

Block 8: Tricolor Block (I know this as Rail Fence???)

Actually, the fabrics for this block were being pulled right when the credits started rolling. By the time the credits were finished, I was already sewing away.....I couldn't just LEAVE it unfinished, so I took an additional 5 minutes to finish it up. SOOOOO EASY and almost perfect 5"!


Sadly, time for me to jump in the shower and actually start my day; shower, lunch, appointment, school-shopping(?), and then time to head back home for maybe some more sewing :0)
Happy Tuesday!

Woohooo, I'd better get a move on -- you are going to be ahead of me soon. The blocks look great. Weren't 7 and 8 a refreshing break after all that paper piecing? I'm doing applique right now!

You and Angela are amazing. I love the looks of your little blocks, but don't think I'm even tempted to try. My fingers are getting all mixed up with each other just thinking about it.

Your little blocks look great. I like the colors you are using too.

You've inspired me to start these - if I ever find the time. I love the colours in your pineapple block.

Great job! I think you've inspired me to get the palm one done so I can do some non-paper piecing blocks!
Thanks
