I have a 'pile' of calico that has been begging to be worked. I had gone as far as to pull it out a couple of times but it always seemed to get back on the shelf uncut.
Well thanks to today being a SNOW day...... the rest of the story is yet to be written.
|I am a fan of cut first and figure out the setting later.|
|Here is my cut Yellows to be use in the center position as the triangle/geese.|
|This is a very die friendly block. ... Cut three rectangles- You can actually do this with any size rectangle, I used my GO Die # 55005 (3 1/2 x 6 1/2)|
|I choose to always use my dark (browns, blues) on the bottom and Yellows as centers and Red/Pinks as the other side.|
|The first couple I sewed I took time to iron. After doing about a dozen, I unplugged the iron and finger pressed, way faster. I am all about not going crazy making a utility quilt. No one every complains that a wrinkle kept them up at night!|
|See how the bottom right looks a bit off? It actually fixes itself when I roll the edge. Promise!|
|See all better and even better after it gets sewn- I use a chicken tracks stitch and white thread.|
|Sew... here we go, two rows done and sewn together. Eight more to go for a 60 x 72 (ish) center.|
The second row is 4 red, 8 pink, 4 black-a, 4 black-b, 4 blue, 2 yellow-a , 4 yellow-b, 6 yellow-a
I am hoping as I progress there will be secondary light and dark chunks emerge. We will see.....
