This week’s Sewcialites2 block is named Empower and was designed by Carrie Nelson. It has a lot of pieces, with essentially one bear paw block repeated four times. I liked the technique in this one, where the half-square triangles are trimmed down to size after construction. Starting with slightly larger pieces means the construction of the HSTs themselves doesn’t have to be super precise, since they get trimmed to their final sizes before being put together into the block units. This week I played with my blue scraps again, and even despite the small sizes of the pieces, I was able to get pretty good points in my block in most places.
