FNSI results...

So, last night was....

For the...

I made the block below.
"All Hallows Variation"
may be found HERE.

~All Hallows Variation~

The half square triangles in the block above 
were made by drawing the diagonal line...
sewing 1/4" on either side...
cutting apart... You know the routine.

Well, to make the additional eight blocks I want
for a topper using this block,
I need 160 HST units.
Last night I printed out and sewed them using

It took about an hour to sew them all.

Sometime today, I will cut them all apart
and tear the paper away... then press.

The four-inch black squares will need
squares sewn to them but that will be a breeze.

Have a great weekend!
Happy sewing... 'til next time,

Those triangulations look really great and easy to use! Cute block! Great FNSI results. I made another union jack for FNSI. Hope you're having a great weekend!

I have used those triangulations in a recent quilt and they made the half-square triangles very easy to make. Love your block.

Oh, I love the triangulations thing. I have a heck of a time with HSTs. I'm going to have to give it a try with this. Not that it will help me end up with blocks as perfect as yours, but I can try, at least. Your block is amazing! Great FNSI. :)
