I love my Library!

And I LOVE this block!


It is from this book.....


which I borrowed from my local library!

The block came together SO easily!

It starts with five 2 and a half inch strips....


Joined and then folded in half lengthways.

Using my new 60 degree ruler, diamond shapes were cut!


Isn't it pretty?


I played around with the layout but this is what I ended up with!


There are even useable pieces leftover.

Now how will I use these?


or


or, striped into a row!


This is definitely the beginnings of my new quilt!

I love it!


I'm off to make some more!!

Happy sewing!
