    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.

  3. Week 5 Progress on En Provence

    by , 12-26-2016 at 06:16 AM
    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.

Lucky for me, I didn't need to go buy more neutral until week 4 so I bought the same print I got for week 2 rather than try to go scrappy like I did for week 1. Now that we are using neutral again, I find myself wondering if I should shop for more scrappy neutral material, use what's left from what I ...

    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.
