Quilting Gallery Quilt Along

This is my first block for the quilt along going on at  It's all about learning more about accurate and precise piecing.  


This block was pretty straightforward for me.  It was all half square triangles.  I got that method down when I was doing the 840 for Jamestown landing.  I did try something new and I might have to continue it.  Normally when I press I always pressed to the side.  Either the dark or the way that made sense so that I could nest the seams.  Michelle, the coordinator of this quilt along, talked about pressing seams open a bit so I thought I would try it and see how it went.   


This was the back of my block.  See how neat it looks!


All my points were spot on.  


If you want to join the quilt along there is a button on the side if my blog.  I would normally include it here but I am typing from my phone and can't figure out how to do it.  There will be prizes and drawings for everyone every week.  

This week I am linking up to
