Block #2 completed, and I must say, I like it even better than Block #1. It went together much faster as well - I think I'm just becoming more familiar with the technique. Next month I will try the assembly order suggested below. I have some visible stitches where the triangular pieces insert, and I think the "make a ring" idea might help. I love seeing the difference that fussy cutting makes! Each of the blocks posted looks different and although I obviously recognized the fabric right away, it took me a minute to suss out how people had cut their fabric differently. Each piece is gorgeous! Happy piecing in May:)
