HST Challenge - Block Nine - Table Saw

Posted by Liz K. on 4/11/2015
Hey quilters! Block #9 in the HST Challenge is here!

For those who may be joining us tardy (don't worry, easy to catch up!):

Table Saw

Well the reason for this week's blocks' name is pretty obvious!

It looks (to me, anyway!) like one of these!

First, as always, you're going to need to make your 16 HSTs (see tutorial link above). Here's the layout of the block:

Here are your two-HST components:

Make 4 of each

And here's the quarter-block, made up of those two components, that will comprise all 4 quadrants of your block:

Make 4 of this block

If you're having deja vu, it's because this is the very same quarter-block used in Week 1 - it'll just be turned differently!

Now lay out your 4 blocks into the Table Saw layout:

You'll have a background-fabric diamond in the center, and background fabric triangle pointing into each corner!

Now join them together into your finished block!

And here're my 9 blocks so far on my "design wall"!

If you don't have a design wall, but you do have a 60" x 72" space on your wall, this thing (it's a Fons & Porter felt design wall that just hangs on any wall) is totally awesome! My blocks have been "stuck" on the design wall for weeks now! No budging.

Good Morning! I just want to continually thank Liz for this wonderful challenge...How fun is this! I'm not sure about all of you our household...there is no breakfast served on Saturdays until the block is finished...and I'm still in my pj's until I'm done! What a great way to start a Saturday! You're the best, Liz!

Thank you Liz for this challenge, it has been lots of fun. I couldn't find any pictures of Block 9 that people have completed. Where will I find them?
