I started to piece by hand but they’re the perfect size for machine piecing. They’re no problem, no need to pin and it’s all good except you can’t space out. No flipping a triangle between your layout to the machine. You know, when you carry it in between your cute fingers to the presser foot. It happens and it’s a stinker.
Note the challenge with pressing. Nothing a little steam couldn’t handle. Simple steam. That’s it.
Here’s the view at two. I’ve got five of these now and a few more ready to work on. I was thinking a brown colorway but then I thought brown and black. I’m not sure how many of these I’d need for a quilt? Probably an awful lot and I don’t know if I would want to piece this block 60-70 times but they’ll make something unique and eye-catching regardless.
- 2 inch Triangle pieces used
- Machine pieced, set-in seams
- 4.25 inches across the bottom of block
- 8.5 inches across the middle of block
And back to that camera. I sure wish this didn’t have to happen right now. There’s so much going on around here and in order to keep the household well-managed I’ve put a moratorium on spending. A certain part of me sure feels this camera is needed in order to keep the household well-managed but my resolve to stick to my plan is rigid.
Anyway, I hope you’ve enjoyed this block and the one that inspired it. Be quilting, *karendianne!
