Block design part two has gone a lot better. You can read about part one here. This is one of the oops parts of part one.
Once the strips were added it was time to put the thinking cap back on. I wanted to add triangles and thought of have the trusty Tri Recs Ruler. I use this ruler set a fair amount. I centered the triangle in the middle of the strips and added them to all four sides.

One rescued center turned into a not to shabby a block. I do have plans for this 6 1/2'' block. That's for another post.
I did take time to draw up a paper piece pattern for the original block idea I had. This is the 6 1/2'' version. Paper piecing was definitely the way to go with this one. I'm still working on the 12 1/2'' version.
Of the two blocks the paper pieced and the 'oops' my hubby prefers the oops.
