Yesterday I got up early, as usual, and planned to go for a walk after doing a little sewing. But, then it started to rain! I was happy because I really wanted to keep working on the "Faithful" block that is Lori's Quilt-A-Long. Plus, we really needed the rain.
Under my sewing table is a plastic bucket that something came in - I think it was a bed skirt, or something like that. You know, the kind made out of heavy plastic with a zipper. Well, I throw extra triangles into that bucket whenever I have some - which is quite often.
I needed 44 1 3/4" HSTs for the Faithful block and I only had 4 from my other basket of already made up HSTs, so I retrieved the bucket from under the table and started searching for reproduction triangles.
I found quite a few and started making the HSTs.
I had to get some extra fabric because most of the triangles in the bucket were not reproduction fabric, or were too small. I tried to use as many different fabrics as I could. See that brown/beige HST in the lower right corner above? The dark side with the dark brown and the kind of lacy looking flowers/leaves is one of my favorite fabrics and I think that is the last piece I have of it. It's kind of sad to use the last piece of a favorite fabric, isn't it?
Some of the triangles were really large, so I just cut them down with this "All-in-One-Ruler."
I think there is one more border and then I might add corners to it so it can be an "on point" wall hanging. I'll think on it some more before deciding. Any suggestions would be welcome.
