What I’m Working On: Triangles Complete

Have you ever wondered what 1600 half square triangles would look like??  Well wonder no more.

Triangles-1

This is so not typical me.  I usually sew a few, iron a few, make a few blocks.  This time around I stuck with it and sewed them all then ironed them all.  It took about three hours just to iron them!!  I thought I would never get done.  I even did that all in one session.

Next up they all need to be sewn four in a row.  When I did the cutting of the red for the units, I ran out of one shade of red and just picked a different shade.  Then I ran out of that and picked another shade.  I ended up using almost all of the solid red I had in the house.

Triangles-2

I think the blocks for this quilt are going to turn out to be pretty fun.  I can’t wait to get back to them.

    All these half square triangles caught my eye over at Judy’s Design Wall Linky party and I just had to come over and find out more. Did you cut all these pieces by hand or did you use a cutting machine? I’m intrugied to see what the finished quilt will look like.

    We had a couple of cooler days, and I took that opportunity to press a box or 3 of bonus triangles that have been accumulating. However I don;t know what I’m going to do w them yet. they are smaller 1.5″ unfinished!
