More "Echo" Piecing

Pieced another block together.  These go really fast, it only took me about 30 minutes to piece the second block together.  Once I knew what I was doing.


This blocks ends up being a 19" block...pretty big.  I'm only going to do a 3 x 3 ~ maybe 3 x 4.  What's also cool about these blocks is you only need 1/4 yard per block for the prints.

...and on to my challenge and YES still a challenge.  Ethne always go's out of her way to comment on my blog and has gone the extra mile for me in so many ways and today she e-mailed me a sketch of an idea for those challenge blocks.  It got me to thinking and sort of steered me in a different direction with them.  

This is what I have now: (it wasn't completely her idea but kinda)


Sort of different...still thinking about this one.  I'll keep you updated with what I do next and I'm sure there will be a next....soon!

Interesting block. I sort of like how it forms a pinwheel in the center. I love your first blocks!
