It's Friday! Time for another Circa 2016 installation!
Here are my 28 hourglass blocks from last week's step. They aren't as scrappy as I would like because I used the traditional method of making QSTs (start with squares, draw a diagonal line and sew both sides of the line, etc.) which makes two identical blocks.
Total Circa blocks made = 44
Hop over to Temecula and see what we're sewing this week!
You should have a trade partner to swap the duplicates with and then you would have a more scrappy look that you like so well.
Wait and see how the fit in the quilt. It might be ok to have two - one for each side of the design. Mine aren't the right size, I must have mis-cut them. I'll have to make more, lol. That doesn't break my heart. I love making Hourglass units. My Tucker Trimmer is my favorite ruler to trim them to size.
They look pretty just the way they are. Like the name Circa 2016.
That's how I like to make those blocks too. Yours turned out great.
I don't know why, but these look like they might be teeny tiny blocks too! (Print size??) Love your fabric choices and they look so well made too :)
Beautiful colors in your blocks.
nice repro blocks - great combinations
