The bane of my quilting experience is triangles. I have long avoided any projects with triangles in them since I started quilting 6 years ago. I have started BOM projects and just quit going because I couldn't get the triangles not to warp. I hate it to infinity. Triangles are horrible.
That being said....
I'm doing my first mystery quilt. It had me make 40 HST (not HST blocks, just specifically the triangles) and sew them on some squares. This clue I have to make 40 to make a square in a square. I've never done that before and despite the pain in the butt that the triangles were, I'm really happy with the way they turned out:
Also in this clue are 320 more triangles. Half are HST and the rest are QST. My brain hurts already. I made sure to meet the middles when I made these squares.
So, what do you really hate? Is there anything that when you make it frustrates you more than anything else? Also...any advise? I have to sew 1 QST on the side of a HST. Aside from starching the bejeepers out of it (starch is my new best friend) I'm not sure what else to do. At the end of this project, I will probably still hate triangles, but at least I will know how to sew them!
I'm curious to see what bothers you.
