After making these blocks my first reaction is a lot of fabric waste. Some shapes are made larger then needed and then trimmed to get the right look. There is a learning curve to this - which is my challenge. Here are the blocks:
|Block 1 - Crossroads|
This block looks like logs on an algae pond. After piecing this block needed to be trimmed to 6-1/2". It was recommended to use same size clear plastic ruler. I don't have one and made a 6-1/2" paper template and guessed it looked about right. This tool would be very helpful.
|Block 2 - Log Cabin|
|Block 3 - Rail Fence|
|Block 4 - Churn Dash|
|Block 5 - Sawtooth Star|
|Bock 6- Mosaic|
It was fun but a little frustrating. A 6-1/2" clear plastic ruler would make it sizing much easier.A possible place mat layout.
