Final 2 Quilt Blocks

The moment have arrived, I have completed all 20 quilt blocks from the 2012 Craftsy Block of the Month.  The below two methods used paper piecing templates from Piece by Number website, if you want to see how it is done check out the The Sometime Crafter website on how to make the circle of geese block.

Next step will be to assembly my blocks into a pleasing layout, then connect blocks using fabric strips in between each blocks.

I kept the stand low so I did not need to make it permanent, I like that I can move it anytime I wish.
