So, I’d like to begin sewing my pieced Bunny Hill Snowbound blocks. I saw another Flick’r member’s cool pieced block. Hmmm, I like how THAT looks…maybe I’ll give it a try…?!
OK. Those aren’t half square triangles (HST). They’re not quarter square triangles (QST) either!? Mmmm, they’re hour glass blocks. HOW do I make those?! Is there m-a-t-h?!
I REALLY just want one sample block. I’m not sure I like how my fabric choices are playing together and I don’t want to make too much of a time investment or big comittment here… Books, paper, pencil, rulers, etc.
Here’s what I’ve got:
So/sew, my sample pieced Snowbound block using previously selected fabrics and nine patch blocks
Yuck-o! Oooh, I’m not happy with it. : / I like the pieced block, but NOT done in these fabrics and definitely NOT with my appliqued blocks! Thank goodnes for a mock-up/sample block!!! I have other fabrics I’ll try. And, at least I learned how to make hourglass blocks without pulling out all my hair…just some of it. ; )
Do you have any good tips for making hst, qst or hourglass blocks? Would you care to share…?! Do you press seams open or to one side? Thanks for stopping by!
