These blocks were rushed - I wasn't really feeling the love when choosing the fabrics and combining the colors. "Let's just get this blasted quilt finished!" But impatience comes and goes and now I am happy again, just plugging away on it, step by step.
There was also some small difficulty in picturing the construction of the block sliced in half. Visual people are always helped by a diagram - I'm glad to have a jar of colored pencils around and a copy feature on the home printer.
