For block #2, I was thinking of a pocket (that curve in the upper-right) with a rivet. Both blocks were created totally ruler-free until the last trim, and this was actually my second try at the rivet. I had in mind to go vertical with the 'creases' but that's not the way the rotary cutter took me. sigh. The last detail I tried to incorporate was the side-seam of the jeans with that vertical strip on the right. It took everything I had not to top-stitch that in gold thread. This block measures 12 1/2" x 13," and I do think I was successful with both blocks in flowing out the edges as Karen suggested.
So yes, that was challenging, but I loved working with the indigo mix and ruler-free was indeed freeing. You can see more blocks at #beesewcial, and feel free to sew along with #inspiredbybeesewcial.
