It was a great discussion point with my quilting friends all week too!!
Yesterday brought the second step in the From My Carolina Home “Scrap Dance Tango Mystery Quilt”. These directions are coming out once a month, and because I decided to “go big” I am already behind, but have enough done that I can move forward with step two. You might remember I said I need to make 1430 half square triangles (2.5″). I have just over 1000 done and ready to use, and have the 3″ squares in the “prep stage” . But since they are all not being used in Step 2, Carole said we could “move ahead” and keep making them while we work on the new step. I had to print out the instructions late yesterday and get a few of the new blocks constructed.
Need to make lots more, and this assembly part doesn’t take too long. I did these 9 in less than 30 minutes.
So, I have a lot more to make, and more HST to mark, stitch, press, and trim. I had an assembly line going for the trimming in the kitchen last week.
Trimming those HST makes lots of scraps. I am filling a stretchy mesh onion bag with the scraps, and will hang it in the tree for the birds to use for feathering their nests.
I have just today left to get my act together before I leave for Texas and a visit to the grandkids! So, no more work on the Scrap Dance project until I return! Happy Stitching.
