After having finished some quilts with really simple and quick piecing, I feel the need to dive back into my scrap bin, wave the rotary cutter about (carefully of course!), enjoy some chain piecing, pressing of the seams, trimming blocks and playing with layouts.
I have had fun!
These blocks are small, using 3 inch square scraps to make 2.5 inch Half Square Triangles, and therefore 2 inch finished squares.
I have been inspired by this Flickr picture, and have made my own blocks accordingly. The squares in the block measure just 2 inches when finished, and I am loving the overall effect. I am beavering away at making more half square triangles using scrap bin fabric, proudly recycling. I have established a little Half Square Triangle production line with which I am rather familiar: cutting, marking lines, chain piecing, pressing, trimming and again and again. Very soothing, you should try it!
It is such a great day for sewing today. Rain rain don't go away!
