Design Wall Monday

 These sewed together as quick and easy as a log cabin block especially since I didn't stress over cut off corners and overlapping points. The 12 inch cut block shrank to 10- 9 3/4 inches after sewing round and round. I trimmed everything to 9 1/2 inches.  I will be sewing this block again, I might trim the center square so I don't cut off so many corners, I may sew the triangles rotating counterclockwise with a partial seam for the first triangle of each round eliminating the overhanging points.  I did cut 2 more pairs of triangles to make the blocks larger, they now measure 13 inches so with an added border this will make a nice throw quilt.
I have to give credit to the ladies at Buggy Barn Quilts for the idea of cutting the corners off a large square and reassembling for this quilt. I put the book in my safe spot and now I can't find it. I need to make a note as to where my safe spot is in my sewing room. Hope you find lots of great inspiration at Judy's DWM. --Ann--
