A Cutting Finish

Want to see what 480 -2 inch black squares?  I finally got all of the black squares cut, but I do need cut some red rectangles and then I will finally be ready to sew step 4 for Allietare.  . 


Between finishing up cutting the black squares I did do my last block for February for the RSC.  This one is called Navajo. 
The colors are Moda Bella Earth (the darker brown) and the lighter orangish tan is Ocher.  I spend more time pressing on this block than cutting, squaring up and sewing, but pressing really pays off, and all of those little HST almost simple using the Bloc_Loc rulers to square them up.  It is nice when you find a tool that makes things so much easier.

That's a ton of little blocks! I love using the Bloc Loc ruler. It does a great job of squaring up. Great earthy tones in that block!
