Week 49 Yankee Puzzle


For this week I felt like a brighter block with some pretty fabrics was needed. And it's another Union block so the blue pile was the place to find what I wanted.

There were a few perplexing minutes when I wondered if I was going to have to recut two of the four striped triangles as I could not seem to get the stripes to all run the right way but then suddenly all was clear and correct.

Only four more Saturdays to be presented with a new block. Will there be another applique block to do?

For the layout I have chosen to do I will need an additional three blocks as well as the setting blocks. The weekly blocks are now pinned up on the design wall so I can keep an eye on them while I work out what those additional blocks should be; it's likely I will make three more the same as the one that I choose for appeal so all four corners can have the same block. Or maybe not.

Beautiful blues! Looks like a man's freshly pressed shirt and a lady's summer dress.

You beat me! But my excuse is these CATS. Your piecing looks perfect and the little stripe was worth the effort. I don't have one in my selections, so I'm just trying to work with different scales in all my prints.
