So it kind of blows my mind that this week marks half-way through the City Sampler book! The best part? I still look forward to these blocks every week and just plain enjoy making them. That's good!
Block 49 was kind of routine - not that I'm complaining!
On the other hand, block 50 was something else! The hsts (1" finished!) weren't really the problem - I used the alternate hst method I shared last week, so those were a breeze. (For the record, I guessed and used 3" squares - a little larger than necessary but better than being too small.) The issue was really that I'm a scant 1/4" kind of gal, and this block really needed a full 1/4". So a little unstitching and restitching took care of that, and I'm really pleased with the finished block.
Block 51 was pretty matter of fact and I really like it - simple flying geese but very nice.
And to mark the half-way point of block construction, I updated my preview grid. I'm pretty pleased to see the color orientation coming through. And I like it!
