2022 Monthly Colour Challenge - October Block

Did you sew along this year for the 2022 Monthly Color Challenge hosted by Jen @ Patterns by Jen?  As we come close to the end, I need to start thinking about a layout for my blocks.  

I used Kona Aruba and Sage.

As I often share, I use my Hera marker to mark lines instead of a using pen or a pencil.  It saves time and energy as you can mark two layers at a time.

I use my Bloc Loc ruler to trim HSTs.

Unless a pattern specifically indicates to press to one side for nesting purposes, I always press seams open when making strip sets.

I find the strip sets lies much flatter, which makes sub cutting more precise.

Another 12.5-inch block to add to the collection.
