The weekend involved much of what I had anticipated - lots of sewing - although working my way through these little units was in fact more work than I had initally estimated.
A whole lot of repetition; stitching small batches of squares at a time, cutting, pressing and ...
... a whole lot of trimming. Grit. Your. Teeth. And just get it done!
I am a fastidious trimmer and make oversize patchwork units/block and trim each and every one back to the exact correct size. Patchwork piecing is so much more enjoyable when blocks and quilt tops come together without the stress and frustration of different size blocks. The smaller the block the less margin for error, and these are particularly small blocks. It is how I prefer to work whenever possible.
How many Half Square Triangles? In excess of 600. Call me a little crazy, I don't mind.
