I've been sitting this afternoon, quilting on Sunday's little project. It occurred to me that I could show you the half hoop in action. And here it is *VBS* I have the center quilted as of last night, and moved on to the borders today. I also have taken additional pictures of my Country Roads UFO from a couple of weeks ago. A reader had asked about it and I sent along pictures and measurements of the block. Here they are for you, if you are interested. The block is an 8.5" block.
This is a half block, made of a 4.5" squares and partnered with 3 2.5" HSTs and 1 2.5" square. Very easy piecing.
This in one complete block. All the blocks should look like this, but then there are several ways to lay them out, including barn raising.
