A couple of days ago I posted that I needed help with a quilt I was planning, you can read up on it here.
But when I looked closely to my original block (right), I realized it didn't look one bit like the one I intended on making in the first place. Why would I want to complicate something that is already done, and which I liked enough to make.

silly pour planning, I started out all wrong, so after looking at the block (left) again, and comparing it with mine, I noticed that my purple block did not even 'match' the one shown in the picture. So I drew out the block on a piece of paper, numbering the fabric, and went from there. I should have done it in the first place, as the tutorial called for 4 different types of fabric, I wanted it like the picture, using 9.
Now the center block, is purple all round with the green around it. Exactly the way it should have been. At least now, the block makes sense, right?
After I was happy with the result I carried on piecing all the little half square triangles. I've linked up the video tutorial I used to make them at the end of this post, be sure to check it out, it's very simple to do.
So after cutting, piecing and pressing the seems open, which comes to a total of 160 small half square blocks (excluding the 2 finished blocks I already made) I decided to carry on tomorrow.
