I must say, after doing block 3, this one was a breeze to put together! I went ahead and cut my pieces ahead of time, which I prefer not to do as I like scrappy - but it worked so well.
Also, with the half rectangle triangle units this time, I discovered a better way to cut the freezer paper - iron it to a piece of scrap fabric first, then cut it to size. MUCH easier!

As I’ve said before, I’m really not a piecer. Throughout making these blocks, I kept the instructions right by my side, kept the tv off, and just paid very close attention. They’re not difficult blocks – if I, who is piecing challenged, can get them done, then don’t be afraid of them! And for those of you who can do these with your eyes closed, my hat is off to you. The whole reason I started designing my own patterns was because I have trouble following one, lol. But I did it, and I’m so glad, I love the finished project – thank you Jacquelynne!!!
I've turned mine into a table runner, and I love it!
