A great day's effort ...

Had a great day out today very productive day.

Went to a friend's property and spent the day working in her studio.

I took along my Friendship Challenge Quilt fabric with the intention of using her mat and cutting out 4 inch squares making half sqaure triangle blocks. 

I couldn't believe it when I was showed some new rulers that made making the half square triangle units much easier.

All I had to do was lay the fabric rights sides together, cut a 45 degree angle, and then cut the strip of fabric I needed.  I then sewed both edges of the strip and then used the ruler that is designed for cutting triangles and I then all I had to do was undo four stitches from the top of the triangle.  After opening the triangles, pressing this unit flat I had half square triangle units.

I was able to make 130 in just a few hours.
Below are the ones I have made. 

This the fabric Kylie chose.

I am still not sure if I am going to use all of these or how I am going to use them but time will tell.


  1. You sure have been busy they look good

  2. They look very yummy. Can't wait to see what else is coming my way.


Thank you so much for visiting me... Take care... Simone
