Did you see what I did there? I took “DAY” out of the title! LOL Day 16 would have been back in January sometime I think, so from here on there will just be numbers to keep track of the posts, but not “days” to remind me of how many days I’ve skipped 🙂
I stitched out some designs today that I’ve been waiting to do – based on a saved pin! – and I had to piece together the quilt top first, as it was also inspired by the same pin. And they were all half square triangles. UGH! There are so many cool patterns you can make by arranging half square triangles, but I hate working with them. I know hate is a strong word. But I often use a few stronger ones while putting these puppies together.
Yes, I know the quick method of making them and I use it, but it doesn’t eliminate the need for squaring them all up and dealing with those annoying little dog ears and the bias edges on every one of them. However, once this came together it was quite striking. I’ll show more photos in a later post once the quilt is bound and ready for sale.
For now, I’m focussing on the pin! The wool batting gives such great texture to the quilting 🙂 Lots of free motion quilting and custom quilting on this one, stay tuned for the finished project post!
