THREE SOW-A-LONG blocks, at last!

I know I've been unreliable about posting my blocks in a timely fashion.  I'm just not the best blogger. I'm sorry. You know why, of course...Nana time!!

Anyway, here are the three I promised.  I will post the last three in the next day or so.

1.  BASKET (can never have too many baskets!)

Dark:           cut (1) 4" square, making (1) hst, 3-1/2" unf, 3" fin (one extra)

Dark:          Cut (1) 1-1/2" square, cut ONCE on the diagonal
Background: cut (1) 3-1/2" square, cut ONCE on the diagonal (one extra tri)
Background: cut (2) 2 x 3-1/2" rectangles

Background: Cut (3) 2-1/2" squares
Medium:      Cut (3) 2-1/2" squares, making 5 hsts, 2" unf, 1-1/2" fin (one extra)

2.  BASKET (see what I mean??)

Various backgrounds and darks:

I'm especially in love with this block since I used some of the scraps my dear friend Will gave me when I saw her in Paris two weeks ago.


Make (4) hsts, 2" unf, 1-1/2" fin.
Background:  Cut (4) 2-1/2" square, cut ONCE on the diagonal.

Medium:  cut (4) 1-1/2" x 2-3/4" rectangles
This center unit will measure 4-3/4" unf, 4-1/4" fin.

There are three more coming in the next day or two.

Hope you're enjoying the final blocks for our sow-a-long!
