Progress on Long Time Gone Blocks

Hello All!  Still working on "Long Time Gone" blocks.  My eyes are crossing with all the half-square triangles I'm sewing.  My sister from "My Sister Made Me Do It... blog found a fast and easy way to make half-square triangles BUT too late for me since I'd already cut out 10,000 squares to make them the old-fashioned way.  Click here to see Ida's tutorial for making them the fast way.

Anyway, I finally finished the "Square in a Square Stars."  Notice the side-ways house block in the middle....


And Half-Square Triangle Block #2. 


After those were done, I did not look for any errors since "what you see is what you get."  I'm going with them.

The Crosses of the UK Blocks were much easier to make.

So, I am making progress.  Now I just need to complete the Flying Geese Blocks, the 60 Degree Triangles, and the Half-Square Triangle Block #3. I'm working on the flying geese and they are currently flying all over the place in my sewing area. 

That is all.

Nice! I love how colorful your blocks are! That's the beauty of scrappy blocks isn't it? I'd better get going on my other HST blocks so I can keep up with you!

I just love all of these blocks. They will make such a fun quilt. You two gals are really pushing each other on this project. I love seeing how you inspire one another.
