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.

Thanks,

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.

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.

H-5 Michael's Motorcycle - white background

H-5 Michael's Motorcycle - tan background. Both blocks hand pieced. This block went together fairly easy and was quick to do.

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.
