Block one completed. Block two almost done. I finished the paper piecing and will start appliqueing it to the backing this afternoon. But I thought I would a picture of it in it's almost completed state.
The fabrics I received for Block 1 are the same as Susan's, however I misplaced the strip for the triangle tips so used one that I had in my stash that was a diffent colorway. The fabrics for Block 2 are quite a bit different and give a different look entirely. The color is a little washed out in my photos though.
Block 2 took a lot less time to piece. I stitched the squares to the diamonds first to make a ring. Then stitched two yellow triangles to one striped triangle, then attached to the diamond /square section, finally stitching the whole mess to center hexagon. This process was less awkward and faster for me. Still looking for a way around the thick points.
