Just like I said in my previous blog post, breaking into my Kona Jelly Roll wasn't easy, but once it was unfurled it was obvious that I had to take action. Take the tape off a Jelly Roll and it can quickly become a hot mess unless you start cutting and stitching ...
I don't often work with fabric limited by quantity or pre-cut, particularly long narrow strips. Revisiting my old favorite - the Half Square Triangle - quickly became part of the design equation to make a quilt with a RPQ touch. I was a little surprised to look back and see that I haven't worked with Half Square Triangles all this year!
384 Half Square Triangles!
Hours of trimming HST's to just their teeny right size.
Background fabric: Alexander Henry - Heath - Metal
A battle of bulky seams tamed to lie flat
with gentle pressure from a hot steam iron.
An adaptation of my Flock of Flying Geese Quilt made in June 2011.
I can't wait to start quilting. The pressure is on not to overdo (and over think) the quilting design.
Have a wonderful weekend!
