You all know that I always have several projects going so that I should have something to work on no matter my mood. Wednesdays are my dyeing day. Generally I'm too tired to do much after a day in the dye studio but yesterday I was in the mood for a bit of mindless sewing.
I think I showed you these half square triangles blocks that I've been making as leaders and enders. I cut out a bunch of HSTs with my Accuquilt Go! 4" triangle die. As I am working on other projects I sew a few of these together as leaders and enders.
I decided to put a few together into a 12" finished block and this is the arrangement I'm using putting the lights and darks into diagonal stripes.
Last night I got 4 blocks made and I think I"m going to love it when it's done. I will probably make this as a Veteran's quilt and that will require 4 blocks by 5 blocks (20 total) for a 48" x 60" quilt. The cool thing about working with value and with this block, is that I can arrange it in a number of ways. I'll keep going and maybe I can do a few blocks each Wednesday after my dye work.
Gosh I love scrap quilts, especially hand dyed scrap quilts!
