More cutting............

I cut the red corners for the Rattlesnake blocks yesterday.  Here are 6 of them paired up with the other 2 parts of the block.  Then I loaded a backing on my longarm and did some vacuuming.
I got 3 blocks sewn while I watched CSI and the 10 o'clock news.  That makes 16 finished out of 36, or out of 24 if I make it rectangular instead of square.  I have almost enough fabric cut for all 36 blocks so I'll have to see if I can stay interested in it.
I just happened to walk through the kitchen when the sun was setting.  It was really more red in the lower part but it came out pink in every photo I took.  You can see I have a lot of wires and branches to look through to see the sunset in town.

You're pretty good at staying interested. Once I see how a block will look with a few others, my interest wains.

Are you using paper piecing to do the rattle snake blocks? They are very interesting. Lovely evening sky.

From one hour each block to 3 blocks in an hour and a half is really moving right along, on your RS blocks.

"Red Sky at night Sailors Delight"... Just looked at your weather and only 13 mph is like a nice breeze this morning. (*._,*) Love a seeing a sunset like that.
