I've had this stash of off-cuts from the "Picnic" sitting in the sewing room for quite a while. This container is only small (~6" high) and it holds about 1,232 small triangles. I saw the 25 HST quilt Thelma and Carrie made just before Christmas and really liked it, remembering that I had all those small triangles. The free link to a printable design is on Camille's blog. Turns out all those little triangles, when sewn together into half-square triangles, trimmed and sewn into the blocks will make about 38 x 4-1/2" blocks. A lot of sewing and trimming for what could be a cot sized quilt.
Anyway, last night I spent about half an hour chain piecing away while the tennis was on and I ended up sewing 86 HST's which will end up at 1-5/8" square unfinished.
Made a little dent in the amount in the container. Somehow, I think the container will end up back on the shelf for a while.
All the four and nine patches are made for the APQ quiltalong ready to start sewing the final 11 blocks together.
Almost the weekend - this first week back at work is just too much.
