Week 6


Week # 6 and time for some more triangles...

This week's block is another 12 incher... with lots of triangles! Ok I hear the groans already....

Head on over to quilter's cache and check our "patch as patch can". A number of the triangles, at least with the construction methos outlined, cannot be made as HST, but must be pieced together into a strip... Yikes!

I think I'll be using lots of starch, and working slowly -- having to tear out seams with all those bias edges going is a real recipe for problems... Sigh. I'm wondering about my sanity in deciding to do this challenge!! :-)

Ah well, it'll get me back to the studio and is a beautiful loking block

Oh my this is going to be interesting. I think best to take this very slowly and plan very carefully otherwise that seam ripper and I will become best buddies.

OMG, Donna! Now you have me wondering about your sanity too! We are doing this for fun, right? This one will definitely be a challenge!

it's a beautiful block, but...yikes! I'm not sure I can think of any other way to construct it to make it easier, but I'll definitely give it some thought.

this looks...impossible? sadistic? definitely a test of my skills with HST
