Currently, I am working on my newest design. This will be a fabulous one for beginners and experienced alike. I am using batiks from Island Batik
. The quilt will have an autumnal feel.
Right now, I am working on the Half Square Triangles (HSTs). I used the method that I show in my tutorial which you can find by clicking here
. Great method and very little waste.
This is what the back side of my sewing machine looked like today. A big old pile of squares that had been sewn and now needed to be cut apart.
Now cut apart, I had this giant stack. Now to cut the squares in half.
Done! Look at the stack now.
I thought it would be fun to measure the height of the stack and it measured 6 inches. There is a lot of HSTs
in there. It is a large quilt. Now to press open and trim.
Ahhhh..... they look all ready to go onto the process in the making of the top. One thing that I like about HSTs
is that they are so versatile, you can see what I did with some in this post here
