Another fun block from Jen for this month's Color Challenge. I made myself a cup of coffee and got to work pulling fabrics from my stash for this one. Our color for Novemeber is yellow. That used to be my favorite color as a girl, such a bright and cheery hue. It certainly stands out this time of year as the colors of autumn take over the landscape.
Jen chose Black-eyed Susan as the flower to represent this month's color. So when I looked at my stash I was drawn to the more toned down yellows, the ones that have a more golden color.
I loved this one so much I made two. Here is my yellow block for November.
And then I made one adding a touch of brown into the mix
which reminded me of the center of Black-eyed Susans.
I did find that if I fanned the seams where all the points come together the block laid flat instead of having that bulky bump. This did mean that on some of them I had to clip to the stitching to allow the seam to lay in the right direction when pressed.
Here you can see how I pressed the seams on the whole block.
This was a really fun block to make. I love how you can put Half-square Triangles together and come out with so many different patterns.
