Sep 17, 2019: Lisa & I spent several hours today exploring quilt ideas. Lisa decided ... well, scratch that. Sep 18: More brainstorming ideas. Sep 19: We both took a break. Sep 20: Back to brainstorming... I have moved our planning details to the infamous dot screen (the dot/period on the menu is not dust on your screen but a link to semi hidden playground for ideas. I is easier to use this mode than emailing. Oct 16: We started working again. Oct 18: We have a plan. I will order fabric in the morning. Oct 23: Fabrics are here - so soft. Oct 24,26: Had to play to see what I'm in for (red blocks) - a whole lot of triangles inside triangles!. Nov 03, 2020: Starting this project. Day 1. Laid out fabric combinations. Counting and recounting to be sure I have enough fat quarters (FQs). Nov 04: Day 2. Pressing the FQs. Nov 05: Day 3. Wanted to do one FQ pair to be sure I was getting it right. Immediately realized I had to cut them in thirds (size of one paper template) Process -- not hard, just time intensive.
Pin a template on the pair, right sides together.
Sew on the dotted lines.
Cut on the solid lines to make 14 triangles & 4 squares.
Repeat 1-3 for other 2 matching thirds.
Press triangles open to make a half square triangles (HST).
Remove the paper.
Trim 2 dog ears on each HST.
Place the 42 triangles & 12 squares in a baggie.
The baggie will contains 54 pieces to make 6 identical blocks.
Went ahead and cut all the 20 FQ pairs into thirds making 60 sets. Nov 06: Repeat Day 3 Process for 60 sets. Yields 20 baggies. Might take a few days. Day 4. Sewed 15 sets (5 FQ pairs). Still need to cut them apart. Nov 09: Days 5-7. Finished first 5 FQs --cutting, pressing, removing paper, trimming. Taking a break on this one. Working on another--Munirah's Sonata. Nov 18-21: Plugging along making triangle sets. Finished 9 of 21 sets. Nov 27: Finished 13 of 21 sets. 8 more to go. Nov 28: Hope to tackle the final 8 sets today but that's a lot. Nov 29: Got the last 8 sets sewn. Still need to cut the triangles apart, press, clip corners & remove paper.
