and then realised that there were quite a lot of component parts in my 'little blocks' box. This is where I put all the leftover half square triangles, four-patches and anything which has been joined together, but isn't yet a block. I was able to save myself a lot of time and cutting, as there are quite a few half square triangles needed for this design. I quickly got half way.
Then I was on a roll. With the end in sight and so many components all ready to use, it was very straightforward. Here is the completed top.
Doesn't it look good? Many thanks to Jane and Chris for designing and organising this. Now I'm going back to the dogs! (Literally, not metaphorically!)
