Royal Mendhi Blocks Cut

I spent my crafting time this weekend on several different projects here and there.  I just can't stick to one.  I was able to finish cutting all of my Hoffman Royal Mendhi blocks for the friendship quilt. I took two 6" strips of each fabric (9 different) and cut them into 6" blocks.  Based on my calculations, I should have enough blocks for two friendship quilts and a few pillow blocks.  I also cut all the cream tonal fabric into 6" blocks.  

I marked the diagonals on all the Mendhi blocks and paired them each with a cream tonal block.  I'm ready for assembly sewing the blocks 1/4" on each side of the center line to make half square blocks.  I did manage to finish 4 complete blocks as seen below.  When I pinned each one up individually, it gave me an idea that I would like to make a red, white, and blue one as well. 

Thanks for stopping by!
