Barbara and Thea, you guys have been doing great with such small and tricky blocks. I think we are challenging ourselves well out of our comfort zone and when we are done we may not have perfect blocks but we will have learned a lot along the way.
I haven't started these blocks yet but hope to in the next day or two. I'm glad you posted your experiences, it will help me decide how to best approach these ones.
G-5 Poof - white background
G-5 Poof - tan background
Didn't have any trouble with this block. The strips and center piece are appliqued onto the background square.
Kathie your blocks look great, I especially like that green and beige one.
I pieced the block with the strips and then appliqued the flower on. I cut away the center behind the flower so the X wouldn't show through.
Kathie and Jacy - great blocks - yes Jacy I am going to redo mine that way. It did not work out with trying to piece them - so that is on my work area to redo... I love how crisp both yours and kathie's look. I know this was one of the harder blocks to do! I love how you fussy cut the material for the flower - very nice.
Kathie, these came out so pretty. I may have to redo mine...Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
Jacy, yours came out really good to . Gee now I know I have to redo mine lol..Barbara
Pretty blocks Kathie and Jacy.

H-5 rotary cut machine pieced. I made two HSTs then added QSTs to each side of those. Then I cut QSTs of the focal fabric and pieced the centre like an hourglass block. I then cut background rectangles and added smaller HSTs and sewed them to the hourglass.
I'm not crazy about this block but it was easy to make.
