Mereth and I decided to each make half of the units for the small Celtic Solstice mystery, and I've done 50 of each of these Tri Recs units. (that picture is upside down, I wish blogger had a rotate button)
I usually get home around 10.30 on Friday night, after dinner with the brother and sister-in-law. Bonnie's new clue goes live here at 11pm, so I wait up and see what we're in for next. Chevrons! I made a heap of these for Carolina Christmas, and hated all those flippy corners. That was before I thought about using the Easy Angle ruler to cut the rhomboids, and before I had the Go Cutter to make accurate triangles.
These are smaller units than the ones I did before, so I made a couple of trial pieces to see if it was accurate. I also experimented to see if it was easier to cut both corners off at once, or if it worked better just doing one at a time.
I've got office work to do this weekend, so I will only be able to sew in odd moments, but I hope to finish these before the next clue is released. Friday seems to come around awfully quickly these days, but it's such fun to look forward to each new clue, and the weekend of course.
And there's this lot to get through too, but the nine-patches are working well as leader-enders, so that's what they'll be for now. My sewing room is a shambles, but I'm enjoying myself.
