ASQA : Post # 2 : Blocks 1 & 7

11:19 PM

Here's my first two blocks.
Block number 1 & 7 for the Among the Stars Quilt Along (ASQA)

I did deviate from the directions and made the hourglass blocks without cutting up the squares into triangles as instructed in the pattern. I used the shortcut method of fast hourglass blocks.

Here's my block # 1


and here's my block # 2



I'm VERY bad at doing precision piecing, so this one was a bit of a challenge! But I'm happy with my blocks!!! 

Dont they look like happy blocks?

Looking forward to making the next ones!!!
