Long days this week have meant fewer moments for sewing, but last night and today I was able to finish up some blocks I've been working on. At the moment, I can't reveal the purpose for them, but let's just say I enjoyed the chance to try out some new designs!
Double hourglass tutorial here.
I made one of these for my OYG Bee sampler, but I liked it so much I made another! Question: is it true that this orientation of the Bow Tie block goes by "True Lovers Knot"? Tutorial here.
Next was a Supernova block, but though I referenced the tutorial, I didn't follow it. Maybe that's why my triangles didn't match up exactly? Oh, well. It's the thought that counts, and I'm along for the ride!
Finally, my favorite. I attempted to duplicate an antique block from the flea market. Ultimately, I wanted to see if I could replicate it and, eventually, write a tutorial when it's my turn for the OYG Bee. I love the way it turned out, even though I used HST's and the original uses rhombuses. Does this block have a name? It's not exactly Weathervane. Do I get to name it, if no one else has? If so, any suggestions?
Hope your weekend is as glorious as mine! Enjoy!
