Hello, friends, and happy Friday! Today I’m sharing the Sewcialites Quilt Block 31 which is the “Noble” block by Susan Ache. I’m also sharing the Sewcialites Quilt Block 7 by Bonnie Olaveson, “Kindred” that I made this week as part of my catch up process for this quilt along. Slowly, but surely, I’m getting caught up! Oh, and be sure to read to the end of the post for a quilt book giveaway!
Sewcialites Quilt Block 31
Block 31 is actually even easier than it looks–at first glance it looks like it might be pieced with triangles. However, it’s comprised entirely of squares (2) and half-square triangles (7). I used triangle paper which saved a lot of time for this one, too.
Sewcialites Quilt Block 7
Sewcialites Quilt Block 7, on the other hand, is made with lots of triangles. But my block went together smoothly. I did trim a couple of the sections just slightly before putting it all together. And several of the seams nested which also helps the block to be more flat.
