GreenPiece - Month Six, half way there...

Yes, it's true, we're half way through the year already!

This is so exciting because the blocks are looking really nice. The two blocks we're making this month is SO much easier than last month!

Start with four 1 1/2" strips in red, brown and taupe. Sew one taupe strip to one dark strip.

Cut strip sets each into eight 1 1/2"segments. Sew segments together in rows and make a 16 square center that should be trimmed to 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"

The blocks are made with four flying geese, four 2 1/2" corner stones and one 16-square center. This month there are two lovely applique blocks as well. I particularly love the ginko pattern.

Here is the same block in a an alternate colorway:

I think I like the alternate colors best.
