Triangulations™ HST... all 160


And here they are!
I really like to use this spinning rotary cutting mat 
when cutting these apart.




I hope to have the blocks
on my design wall by Monday.

...Karen

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
Triangulations™


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,
Karen
