I managed to make four more blocks today in between a doctor appointment and running some errands. I wanted to make enough blocks so I could start playing with settings. The barn raising setting required that I make some three-quarter triangle squares for the sashing cornerstones where there is a bend in the light-dark pattern. Once I figured out that was what was needed it was pretty easy to make the required parts. I think I'm going to really like this arrangement - no surprise, as this has always been one of my favorite log cabin arrangements also. Hopefully I can make a few more blocks this evening. The Mariners are playing so badly that it sure isn't worthwhile sitting in front of the TV. I can listen to them lose on the radio just fine.
