I've been busy cutting my squares down to size before beginning the task of piecing them all together. So far I've trimmed 195 squares. And this is the pile I have to show for it.

So today I started taking apart the mannequin "Christmas" tree but before I did I took lots of pictures. Now the process to cut the threads, trim the squares, and put it all together begins.
My son is getting me an essential triangle tool so I'm trying to wait for that before doing anything else with my 3 1/2" strips. Once I get it, I'm sure it will take no time at all to make 64 half triangles.

Since my last post I've finished week 3, bought more neutral fabric and my backing fabric, and sewed all 80 triangle in a squares for week 4. I'm so much happier at how this group turned out, make me want to go back and look at what I did on my earlier attempts during week 2.
