Geometrics

I think the mojo is back. Now just to find the time...

This morning I knew I had to make Cathy's block for SC3.
She mentioned that she likes geometrics and I remembered a little puzzle John once sent me when I won a giveaway.
Inspiration
It wasn't exactly conducive to piecing (I don't do inset seams) so I redrafted it in EQ5 with some minor alterations.
Block Draft
Lots of little squares and triangles later:
SewConnected 3 - October
I'm quite pleased.

Pin It!
