Next up in the Block of the Month 2012 Course were the half-square triangles.
I was really apprehensive about cutting out so many triangles, but the method taught was to cut squares and sew them either side of the diagonal; two half-square triangles made at a time, with no bias-edges to deal with.
First was the Chunky Chevron block. I love the bold design and think it could look great as a full quilt, showcasing some great prints.
Balkan Puzzle Block
For the Balkan Puzzle Block I decided not to use plain white background fabric, and instead chose white with dots. Hmmm… was it a good idea? I can’t decide whether it is too busy or if it will look good with all the other blocks. I love polka-dots but maybe this was too much! What do you think?
