Happy to have finished some more blocks

This was the nice easy one I did after a stressful day.

Block 13

Block 7
Cut one piece a bit short at the bottom, but I’ll have enough to fudged it when sewing together.

Block 7 - Nearly Insane
Block 26

Nice and Easy

Block 36

I never noticed until now that two of the green diamonds go the wrong way. Grr! 
Or are they?

Block 36 - Nearly Insane

Block 42

This was an absolute pain to do as I kept sewing the strips together the wrong way around. I didn’t just do it once, but at least 3 times. Then after piecing the centre I had the two vertical rows of geese going away from the centre instead of towards it. Ah well….

Block 66     
I really like this block.

Block 60 –
Another nice one. I’m trying to have my colours not too drab.

Block 48
This one is a bit different. Some of the blocks are so easy, and some are very difficult.

Block 54

I really like the star blocks. I think they are my favourite.
