It only took me two tries, but I figured out how to make quarter square triangle units the size I want them. I still say that using quilting to teach basic math concepts would be a fantastic way to have students use math in a practical way. I have been putting off learning how to make these beauties because I was unsure how to keep them from getting all out of shape. After a year and a half of making quilts, I think my skills are really improving. I am still really looking forward to class with Gwen Marston next weekend to see how these things are really supposed to be done.
But I digress. As I look at this mini now, I wonder how I can make the pink and blue solid pieces in the second border work better. I like the brightness of them, and having a nice place to rest your eyes, but I am not sure my love of asymmetry works well here. I believe I can make it work in the final border. I just have to figure out how. Don't you love the fussy cut corners on this border? They are from the same KF as the center flower.
Tomorrow is going to be another beautiful day in the PNW. My daughter and son-in-law are taking me out, with Tom, to a wonderful seafood dinner on the water at Salty's in West Seattle. Until then, I will play in the studio. I hope you moms out there are doing something equally as fun. Enjoy your day. Until next time, joyful quilting.
