I have been continuing to turn my bag of gifted scrap paired triangles into HSTs and then into Pinwheels. Quite a time consuming task but I am doing bits at a time.
I have now sewn all the paired triangles into HSTs and they are all trimmed to 1.75". Most of those have been turned into Pinwheel blocks, with about 8 more left to sew into Pinwheels. Some of the finished Pinwheels have also been trimmed to a scant 3" block.
This is what they are looking like:
The top row are waiting to be sewn, the middle row need trimming (not 4 Pinwheels there, but 4 PILES of Pinwheels!) and the bottom row ARE trimmed!
As I was congratulating myself on being so productive with the bag of gifted scraps I suddenly remembered a previous bag of paired triangle scraps the same lady had given me several months ago. At the time I had lots of projects on the go and decided to put the bag away in a drawer. And then forgot about it!
So, a couple of days ago I looked it out and was a bit non-plussed to find this bag 2 or 3 times the size of the previous one! Oh my goodness!
Here it is!
The triangle pairs are literally stuffed into the bag! 100s of them!
For the past hour I have sewn paired triangles together and am now off to press them. Then I will put all the piles into plastic bags until next week. Of course I have barely put a dint into the stack of scraps in the bag.
However we have our granddaughter for the weekend, so no sewing can be done then.
I have also finished hand blanket stitching the I Spy bubbles to my Freckles Quilt. That's now ready to be sandwiched.
And I have done a lot of hand quilting on my Rainbow Beeline Quilt. It's looking great, the rainbow bands of colour being embellished with a row of largish Perle cotton stitches.
So a lot accomplished on the sewing front this week. Hurrah!
