Hive 1 February Hourglass Block

It feels like February flew by and while I made my blocks two weeks ago, I wanted to square them up before mailing and I realized they were much smaller than the 6 1/2" they should have finished at (more than 1/4").  For whatever reason, me and 2 1/2" squares do not get a long very well.  I also was not happy with my initial fabric choices. These are the blocks that I made originally:

Thankfully, last night I had a bit of time to remake them AND they are all the correct size. YES! I'm mailing these blocks to you today 😊

I started squaring them up and cut myself with the rotary cutter.  To save the blocks from a bloody mess, I decided against squaring them up any further (why do rotary cuts bleed so much???). Hope you like them!

Thanks Rochelle. So sorry you were bitten by the cutter! They look terrific.
