do. Good Stitches – September Blocks

I’m running a bit late for my blocks for do. Good Stitches. We are almost in October and I just finished up my September blocks. I had started them earlier, but then I realized I didn’t have enough Kona in white. Thanks to Pam from Mad About Patchwork, I received some in no time!

For September, Rebecca asked us to make 2 blocks. Each of them had to be done from  four units from the Hugs & Kisses tutorial at Little Miss Shabby. Rebecca did some changes to the size of each fabric pieces to get a block larger than what was intended in the tutorial. I love this block and I think it’s a great choice for a bee quilt. Rebecca is making this one for a boy. I hope she will like my fabric choices.

As said at the end of the tutorial, there is a good amount of fabric waist when constructing the block. So, I decided to stitch a second stitching line at 1/2″ from the main one when sewing the pieces together.

This way I ended up doing an additional 32 Half Square Triangles (HST) that I will use later in some other projects.

I was playing around with HST configurations. Any suggestions? What do you like to do with them?

    I like the block on the right – I want to do a scrappy quilt with what block. They're also fun for pinwheels, or shoo fly blocks (my favorite).
