    Hi Kitsie! I'm doing ok, thanks. Busy, busy today. And you? What are you sewing these days?
    You could do the center square on point too. Or you could do lots of HST's using this method.

    If someone were going to do the faux TB pattern, it's certainly seems the easiest way to go - so many construction possibilities, and easily adjustable to any size. Also, the setting - straight or on-point - allows for even more variations.



    I thought I saw a reference to Jaybird on your thread, so I just included the link.
    And I agree about doing it the original way - there is just something aesthetically pleasing about those 60 diamonds!


    FoUnd what Imwanted on the WonderCut ruler website.
    Link? Just curious.

    I did get that you wanted to do it with HST's - but there is a difference between HST patches and HST blocks.
    Which is why I suggested the S-in-a-S block.
    It was hard to tell from your picture where the seam lines were, and if the square was one piece of fabric or seamed.
    Looked like one piece to me.

    At a quick glance, all the references to TB patterns on the Wondercut site use 60 degree triangles. Although, I did see a S-in-a-S block made with HST blocks (with all outside bias edges - yuck).


    Slightly OT, here's an audacious floor treatment (probably not a great suggestion for anyone with balance problems).

    OMG!! That floor block design is great, but can you imagine trying to walk on that...think it would make me dizzy!!

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
