Bloom Bloom Pow Quilt Along

In week 3 of my quilt along we had to piece the strips of fabric that we cut.  They went together in a specific order and were very easy to piece. The lighter shades went in the middle strip and the darker shades were sewn along each edge of the center strip.  In the end we had nice long strips to work with.

In week 4 we took our 60-degree rulers and cut the triangles. By alternating which side of the piece we cut from, each strip produced 6 triangles which will form the blocks.  I don't know if I mentioned it before, but buying fabric like this, in a kit, it forces me to use colors I normally wouldn't.  Still don't know if I like the dark blue in this set.  We will see what it looks like in a few weeks when we lay the whole thing out.  But for now I am thinking I just might make a few more strips of colors I like and totally leave the dark blue out.
