So I flipped the outside -corner blocks and then turned the centre square. Here's a thing to remember when sewing everything back together ... make sure the little triangle points in the corner squares are facing out .... obviously I had a couple of seam ripping-out sessions.
This time, I cut 1-1/2 inches from the centre seam (so the centre piece is 3 inches and the outside pieces are a wee bit larger.)
Outside corner squares were flipped so the little triangles faced the outer corners; the middle 4-piece square was rotated one turn .... and then I flipped the 4 narrow pieces (centres of outer edges) so those little triangles faced in.
A small star pattern with a 4-square in the centre!! I think I like this better than the first blocks I was making above.
Time to add a few more blocks.
One way to organize the blocks ....
Not sure which way I will choose. It looks like I will have to add another fabric to the mix ... I think I will need about 80 blocks in total to make a quilt top and there is not enough fabric in the two pieces I am currently using ..... and no, it does not mean a trip to the fabric store. I have lots of 1/2 and 1 and 2 metre pieces in my stash that I should be able to mix and match.
