Weathervane And a Few More Hexies

Today's block was a joy to make.  I found a few different pieces of the Toy Box fabric that I didn't already have, and it was so fun to put them to use.

As I work my way through all of these blocks I'm seeing the blocks differently.  I guess it just amazes me that by repeatedly taking the same elements (half-square triangles, flying geese units, squares) and turning them just a little or adding more of one or the other, you can make a completely different block...and sometimes there isn't really that much of a difference.  I would have thought with all the piecing I've done over the last 20+ years I'd have figured that out before, and maybe I did, but not to the degree I am now.  This is block number 72 of 366 and it is a 12-inch block.

Here are hexies 136 through 138 of 140.  I could have finished them all yesterday, but I did some major spring cleaning.  The cleaning took a little more time that I thought it would, but oh was it worth it!  Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I'm linking with Design Wall Monday, Made by You Mondays, and Manic Monday.  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen
