Block Construction: Topaz


I know I will say this with (most) every block... but I love the color. I had trouble narrowing my fabrics down to just three, initially I had five. As I started cutting my fabrics, I quickly realized one of them wasn't working great. It didn't flow, it had too much of a green tint when paired with the rest. Ultimately, I ended up using four.

After I got my pieces cut out, I separated them into sections and clipped them together. I laid them out in the order they will be when it is pieced, and then "cut" them apart (it reminds me of a pie). Since I was traveling, it helped me keep everything in order. I wish I had of thought to take more pictures as I went along.
