Brown and purple

Two more Crown of Thorns blocks joined the little group last night. I finished the brown and the purple ones. Other than trimming my HST, these 15" blocks go together quickly. 

I know there are lots of other methods of making HST, but I usually stick to my old standby method - cutting larger squares, putting a diagonal line on the lighter one, and sewing 1/4" seams on both sides of that line. Then cut apart, press and trim.  And I will admit that I "pressed" my diagonal line on the 4" white squares using my iron. Quick and easy.

  1. Excellent! This block is a winner for sure: the background in each allows the single colors to shine.
