The little block for this week is called Hexagon Step. This is another block that took about 2 hours to sew together.
When I first saw the block, it reminded me of radiation danger signs!
I decided to change up the look by not alternating my color strips with background strips in each row. Instead, I used full color row around the hexagon shape and then followed it with a full row of the background fabric.
Here’s a look at my Hexagon Step block with one of my antique toy sewing machines. Isn’t the little seahorse cute?
I’m enjoying piecing these little blocks each week. There are small but satisfying in these unusual times. We have four more blocks left to sew in the SAL, not counting the bonus block, and then we have a 2 week window to make and finish a project using the blocks.
Here’s a look at my first four blocks together:
Next week, I’ll post my Stretched Geese block for week 5.
Take care and happy quilting!
Love those narrow pieces!
