Over the last week, yesterday and a day last week, I did these blocks.
This first one was pretty easy. I had cut the pieces for all these blocks a few weeks ago but didn't write down any special instructions to remember about them. This block I had cut the triangles for paper piecing, but them pieced them in the ordinary way, and they were way to big. So I ripped and cut them down.
This block had so many pieces it took a while to figure out what was what. I must say I'm getting Eleanor Burns' method of Flying Geese down. It's simple and your sew twice and you about have it. It's a great way to do them.
And the spools. I have done Y seams before and these came together very quickly. I am seeing that for pictures I need to use a straight edge to keep the edge of the square even with the edge of the lens. Or stand straight on top of the picture so there's no angling.
