Blocks 7 and 8

After last week's arrow block and curved piecing I decided to take it easy.  Big blocks and straight seams only this week!

Block 7 is simple strips.  It took less than an hour to design and sew.  Yay!

Block 8 is little bit of fun with half square triangles.  Matching up all those corners is not my strength but this one came out OK.

I was really struggling to photograph this set of yellow-green fabrics.  It's so much prettier than what was showing up in the photo.  Luckily a discovered a trick to get my photos to come out nicely.

Fabrics used:
Henna in Aqua (Eden by Tula Pink)
Kona Solid in Cabbage (by Robert Kaufman)
Chelsea in Leaf (Highline by Free Spirit Fabrics)
Doily Web in Mustard (Spellbound by Cotton + Steel)
Pasture Lines in Pickle (Carkai by Carolyn Friedlander)
Drawn Stripe in Leaf (Carkai by Carolyn Friedlander)
Pure Elements Solid in Light Grey (by AGF)
