A whole lotta piecing

This is another block for a fellow bee member from the Around the World Bee.


The particular block was quite intense to make.  It is comprised of a lot of small HSTs sewn together in different directions.  I finally figure out the pattern of the blocks and it went a bit quicker.

Unfortunately, the block came out 1/4″ bigger than it was supposed to.  I have no idea why.  I trimmed as I went and used a 1/4″ seam.  I haven’t checked the math (ie: calculated it all), and I’m not sure I really want to.  It’s a lot of math.

I really like the block, all the neat corners, and the flow of squares out from the center.

I have one more block to make, but we’ll see if I end up doing it.  Because it came out a bit bigger, I’m not sure the bee member will want me to complete the second one.  I have all the pieces cut, so we’ll see.
