Pentagon Wreaths - Again!
Yes, you can say that I'm really enamored with this simple block. Easy to stitch (English Paper Piecing) and it allows you to showcase some lovely fabrics in a unique way.
This is an updated post on some Pentagon Wreath blocks I made in June. (Check out the link). Here are four blocks waiting to be joined into a quilt. But they need a few more, I think. I added the triangles in the corners to add a little more color.

Here's that blue block up close (before it was stitched down):
Here is the pink block up close - stitched down.

I used a Windham Collection called Solstice. These are fantastic prints!

I also made some circles last November. They are destined to be appliquéd to background squares (as you can see on the right side of the photo.)
And a few more Pentagon Wreaths I've made here and there.

Here's a block from both the front and back. I trim away the background to reduce the weight and bulk.
Keep tuned for how I'm going to stitch these into a quilt. For now, they hang quietly on a skirt hanger in my closet.
These are 2" pentagons and the single center hexagon. Easy to work with, honest! And this is great take along hand work, too!
