The recommended piecing for this block was altered up quite a bit. Rather than paper-piecing all of it, I elected to rotary cut and patchwork piece the hourglass blocks.
I like how these rulers are labeled! It doesn't take much calculation at all to determine strip sizes for blocks! I knew that the finished hourglass block needed to be 1 1/2", so I grabbed my Companion Ruler (a quarter-square triangle ruler), looked at the BIG outer numbers (which show the FINISHED size of the block), and cut strips at the width of the inner/center/smaller measurement listed.
Then I cut up the recommended paper-pieced units for the corners of my nine-patch block....
Then pieced the 9-patch together :)
Still plugging along :)
Heading to school today for a few 'relaxed' hours this morning; slowly transitioning into school-mode :)
