Now I don't usually make perfect half or quarter square anything. Let alone this many anythings. My half squares (or 1/4 squares) are usually at least a little bit wonky or not quite the right size and I do a lot of trimming or stretching and finally give up and just try to "quilt it out".
Now, however, I have the perfect program to make any size "half square" come out perfect. Brenda Henning Triangulations CD.
OMGosh I can't believe how easy and nice these blocks are. 2.5" Aren't they nice? Yes! I think so too.
I've made a few more since this picture but I still have a lot more to do yet. The clue says we need to make 224!
This is what I printed out on sheets of newsprint. Then layered two pieces of fabrics with this sheet on top and sewed on the dotted line and cut on the solid and this is what they look like. >>>>>>>
Then I trimmed the dog-ears and removed the paper before sewing the two halves together and TADA....perfect!!
Even the backs look good.Bonnies blog so you can see what some of the other people are doing with their color schemes if you're interested.
Judy's Design Wall is up and I have a finished top to show. This is the last of the Christmas fabric and I'm pleased with the final product. Even tho it has some glitches and goofs it will still be a nice addition to my (now 3) Christmas snuggle quilts and I'm pleased that I have used up all this fabric line. Once I get it quilted I'll show off the back. For the first time I pieced it using all the leftover blocks and small pieces of yardage. I'll have just enough waste from the back to use for the binding. Here is the finished top...
You all have a great day.
Thanks for stopping by....
