But I went in to do something in the fabric/ catch-all room and found a nice little package of 10 inch squares. My friend - Left-Handed Quilter - mentioned not liking to have blocks with bias edges. And we discussed how many things from the Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorials are made with bias edges.
I thought - Hey, why not make these into HSTs? (half square triangles that is.) Being in the mood to do some "unplanned" sewing, I did these using the method of two squares together sew around the outside and cut on diagonals. It is a really quick and easy way to make HSTs. Of course like most blocks they need trimmed to size.
First I put it in with the same layout as on the board above. Then I had a "vision" and took out the diagonal line. I used the "fabrics" in the program to color it and I got this
I am still trimming (and playing) with the HSTs I sewed. So at this point I don't know what they will become. But I did save the "stairs" project in EQ.
#ad This weekend only, Craftsy is doing something they almost never do — all new online classes are up to 50% off. That's right! That just-released class you've been eyeing from your favorite instructor? It's on sale at prices so rare, you definitely don't want to miss out. These deals will be gone soon, so shop now!
