September's Challenge Block

Although I haven't posted for a week, I have been busy in my sewing studio. I was able to complete September's Challenge Block last Saturday while at a sew-in.

This month, my friend Jo, author of the Pieceful Afternoon blog, selected Triangle Chain Block as our challenge block. The block itself went together rather quickly, but I'm not a fan of the sewing instructions. I found I used the written directions for cutting the pieces and assembled it on my own. I really like this block and think it will go nicely in my sampler quilt at the end of a year.

I agree - I don't like the directions - but then I find that most of the directions at that site are not as good as I'd like. I got mine finished too - in green/white.

Yours is lovely.

Ooh, such neat sewing you do. All your corners and points are so perfect! I really like the color choices in your block. Nice job.

Dena,

Thank you for visiting me and leaving the kind comment.

Your block looks pretty! I love how the HST's added interest to the block.
