New Blocks

More cutting out, these are the new blocks for the quilt, I'm hoping these won't be as busy as the previous lot and calm the quilt down a little. The original blocks will then go into another quilt with plain sashings.
I have been using the Westalee square in a square trim guide to cut the corners off of the triangles, it's making the square in a square blocks a lot more accurate than I normally make them, which is also making the finished blocks more accurate also, yay!
What is it that when I try to lay out a quilt to look at it the kids decide to play on it, it's like moths to a flame. I was trying to motivate myself to finish quilting this quilt and Tulley decided it was the place to play ball. It's one of those projects that I ran into problems with it sitting flat when quilting and I really like the quilt so I don't want to muck it up, but it all got too hard and was put away to "mature" for a while.
I still can't work out why it turns the photos around, it seems totally random.
This quilt was thangles sampler blocks, a month by month project that I actually kept up with, I really like the fabrics it's all reproduction prints and I plan to put in on our bed........ when I get it finished.
