The two split blocks.
And the other blocks completed so far in this row.
Don't look at this block if you are a perfectionist. I found the mistake after I'd trimmed and removed the paper. I'm leaving it like it is.
I've pressed these blocks but the edges still curl.
A picture of the backside of block #47 before the paper is removed. Give it a good press, be careful, the paper gets HOT!
The front side before trimming. I always like to make the pieces for the outside extra long.
I found this yellow in another tub, pulled it out and used it in this block. The color is more brighter than the other yellows I've used but I like it.
Trimming to an exact 6-1/2". Using a 6-1/2" square ruler makes it easier.
Now the paper can be removed from the back. Never remove the paper before trimming or you will be very sad.
And the block beside all the trimmings made while piecing.
I didn't like the block for week 6 of the Solstice Challenge so I made a 2nd block from the week 5 pattern, but made value changes.
I've decided not to participate in the Two Step mystery quilt. I'll be downloading the directions, but I just don't want to spend my time sewing a quilt if I'm not sure what she will look like. I know, that's the mystery in mystery quilts but I like to play it safe.
