cut corner to corner

Continuing on with my Hour Glass Blocks today...

First cutting on the line I had drawn and then again from the opposite corner to corner too...this yeilds 4 units.

I pressed each unit to the printed fabric and then RST two of the units together...pinning at the opposing seams.

Then it's back to the machine to chain piece these units together...I like to do at least 20 or so at a time.

Kind of like mindless sewing...you don't have to "think" too hard!

Lol!

trimming blocks

After pressing the blocks open...I trim them down to an unfinished 4.5" and you can see the cute little pile of fabric slivers on my cutting board.

Before you ask...

NO...

I don't SAVE those tiny slivers...

LOL!

Quilt on!
