LibRR1 Round 1: Triangles!

I have loved seeing everyone's first blocks! Everyone is so creative!
Now it's time to add on...

Using liberated triangles, add one or more pieced strips around your initial block. These could include half-square triangles, a dog-tooth border, tall skinny triangles, or short squat triangles. Stars and diamonds can be made from triangle units, too.

All four sides do not have to be the same design.
You may opt for assymmetrical borders, adding them to only 1 or 2 sides.
Add plain borders between the rounds, as desired.

Please post a photo on this blog when you complete the round, and if you have used an internet resource to construct your border, please share the link.

You have 3 weeks to work on this step; our next round will be posted on June 10.

    There really aren't deadlines - just dates we are going to post the new guidelines!
