It was mega fun, and now piecing is mega done!
I can't decide which is my favorite block, but it's probably this one:
In her tutorial for this Setsuko Inawaga block, Badskirt points out that the X-part of the block is most effective when the stripes run to the corners. This means that with some fabrics you have to cut on the bias.
That had a particularly cool effect on this dotty ombre print! (Don't worry about that large piece of fabric I just cut a hole in...it is already part of another project.)
This watercolor print from Sarah Watson's line is just so cool that I simply cut squares on the bias and didn't do the "X" parts of those blocks.
I think I will be quilting this soon...I've (a) got a stack of quilt tops building up and (b) need to stick to my plan to quilt one top a month!
