Blocks 11 and 12

Block 11 is a modernized Churn Dash block.  It measures 8" square.  I cut everything freehand for an irregular look.

I quite like this little block.  I think I might make an entire quilt of Churn Dash blocks.  Perhaps with something cute fussy cut in the middle?

Block 12 is a log cabin block.  At first I thought I might attempt a smaller version of my Oops! quilt but I decided it would lose too much detail shrunk down to an 8" block.

These strips were cut without a ruler.  I'm getting better at cutting straight lines freehand so I'm going to have to start intentionally cutting crooked lines on these freehand blocks!

Next week (lucky 13) is the final 8" block.  After that I move on to 6" which hopefully will speed things up.
