new blocks from magazine series

Added two more, but had to change the fabric on the second one  as I didnt get it right the first time :)

Sailboat block

Shoo-fly Block also known as Puss-in-the-corner or Kitten-in-the-corner

I also learned how important it is to iron the seams the correct direction. The block lies very flat.

Alex's Quilt progress

I have finished 5 rows of  4 blocks so far, just designed the pattern for the border on graph paper
Learning loads with this project.The blocks are 9 inches squared. I am using foundation piecing method, but find lots of fabric is wasted especially on making some of the triangular parts.
