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.

Hey, it's a gem and they aren't perfect either. Here's my finished Topaz. I can't wait to see yours!
