Here is how I made the blocks:
Starch and iron fabric - and cut with the Accuquilt 4.5" finished Half Square Triangle die. For each block you need: 12 HST in white and color - and 4 HST in all color.
Aurifil 50wt. Muslin (#2311) on the front and variegated French Lilac (#3840) on the back were my secret weapons for quilting - along with lovely Kona white.
I have had quite the hoard of Gypsy Caravan over the years - and grabbed up enough Turkish Paisley in anticipation of having it for a quilt back one day.
Why it is easier to start a new project than finish old ones - this quilt top was made in 2014. For no real reason it just sat there while I sewed a ton of other quilts! I forgot how big I trimmed the squares, how many triangles to cut ... so many details.
I look forward to the day when my orphan projects are finished and white knuckle it to do only one at a time ... here's hoping anyway :)
