Purple hexies #3 and some Jared units

Here is my third hexie block, finished yesterday.

I just started block four, but haven't gotten very far yet. :)

I have been itching to get back to Jared Takes a Wife for a little while now, but didn't have the opportunity until today. I had a bit more cutting to do. I had to cut 2 x 5 inch strips (not shown), and the 2 x 2 inch squares that get sewn to either end of them. The inner ones:

The outer ones:

That Sizzix cutter and the strip dies are coming in really handy! After I cut my 2 inch strips, I laid them back across the 2 inch die again and cut them into 2 inch squares, easy peasy, and SO much better on the shoulder than rotary cutting all of them.

Then I started sewing the pieces to the ends and together, to end up with star point units.

3 sets down (and 3 blocks already completely sewn together), so only 24 more sets to go, and then I'll be able to start piecing the remaining blocks together.
