H-5 Michael's Motorcycle

I am trying to get back to work on my blocks, so today I picked a pretty easy one, Michael's Motorcycle.  I re-drafted it to make the triangles in the middle as half square triangles.  It didn't press too well because of all the bias in the middle, but I think once it's set in the quilt it will behave just fine. 

Tomorrow will be a work day, so maybe I can get one of the applique blocks ready to take with me.  Then I can work on it during my breaks.  I probably should spend a day and get several prepped for days when I need to do some hand work. 

Time to start pushing these out if I want to be finished by August!

My version of this block also leans to one side. Like you said, setting it into the washing does help.

That's a good plan, Pamela, of prepping those blocks. I've found if you use steam and starch to block the unit will help to get it back into shape.
