Modern Sampler :: Block E

After Block D's little issue with accuracy, I was thrilled that Block E came together nearly flawlessly. I'm pretty sure now I just forgot to square up the center block last month before continuing on with the borders. So hopefully that won't happen again.

The little issue this month was my bright idea to piece 9 equal squares together before angling to trim. My method didn't allow me to match the pattern's angle exactly, but I think the effect is still there, so I'm happy. And I was able to use mostly scraps again this month!

I was especially pleased when I put all my Modern Sampler Quilt quilt along blocks up on the design wall together. I'm trying to pay close attention to fabric placement, especially with the more patterned fabrics. So far so good I think.
