I have stitched many half-square triangles together and have joined them into units, rows, and more rows of twos and threes. There is a nice pile still to go but I had to see what one completed Color Crystals block would look like. The piecing and joining of those dreaded points has been going well and I am in a nice rhythm of pinning and sewing. The points aren't perfect but are acceptable enough and I am just thankful it is working out as well as it has, given a bit of a frustrating start!
I am very pleased with the first block and think the colours are beautiful. As I said, the main part of the quilt top is made up of two alternating blocks. This is just the first of Block A with 31 more to do and I have the entire piecing from the start for Block B still to begin. Once all these components (block A, block B, and HST pieced borders) are done, the top will be finished.
My impatient and curious side got the better of me but I am rewarded with this resulting block and motivated to keep going (not that there was any doubt!). Sometimes you need a quick glance at the finish line to keep on running!
