Have you ever thought that there must be something that could be done with the half-square triangles that are left over after trimming flying geese. Well I finally have completed a project that I think turned out pretty well.
If you ever forget to hold both top and bobbin threads when starting to sew a seam with your machine, you may very end up with sewing machine ‘vomit’ on the bottom fabric. Yuk! I sometimes use a leader fabric (a fabric scrap at the beginning and end of the block I am sewing.) So why not use these leftovers for the leader block?
What to do with them? I like the look of a scrappy quit that looks what I call ‘scrappy coordinated’. An internet search turned up a plethora of half-square triangle block quilts. A few sites are:
I decided on making a churn dash quilt using the discarded half square triangles from a quilt that a friend is making for me. What a find this turned out to be!
I got so caught up in the process that I had to make the backing scrappy too. The result a reversible quilt.
What a find!
There is always time to quilt!
