On my design surface is more of the same--but this will be the last week it gets shown since the baby shower is next Saturday. My PC was in the shop so I didn't have access to these photos when I posted the pic last week's DWM of the blocks laid out. The construction of the Houndstooth block was super simple, sewing opposite colored 3" squares on two corners of a 6" square (I double-stitched the small squares for bonus HSTs).
Then two opposite-colored pieced 6" squares were placed right sides together and stitched as if they were big HSTs, on either side of a drawn line corner to corner between the smaller squares to create a striped block.
I pressed all the seams open for maximum flatness, then squared them down to 5.5". The pieced block is flipped every other row so either the pink or brown triangle is at the top to match the solid alternate 5.5" block. Clever, no?
All the rows got pieced (Oops, one row is turned wrong!). I pressed to the solid blocks so all the seams would nest. Once the top is complete I gotta get going on the quilting portion. I found this fabric for the back at Joann's:
I love it! This baby quilt is destined for a friend who already has two older monkeys :) See more design walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.
