    I cut squares and then make two at a time. By drawing a diagonal line from corner to corner, use the drawn line to sew a 1//4 seam allowance on both sides, and then cut down your line. Eleanor Burns has a way to do it that makes 8 at a time I think, but I can never remeber the math.

    Other use thangles, those are sort of like stickers that you put on the fabric and sew on the sewing lines and then remove the thangles.

    No wonder you're sick of them Patrice! :D

    Wow!!! Patrice--that is just stunning!!! I have never seen a block like it before--you are very good at "making it up as I go along". I LOVE the thin black line that divides the sections--really sets it all off. Simply put-a beautiful creation!!! I cannot wait to see more of it!!!!

    It's not hard to get sick of half-square triangles! But your work was worth it--your quilt is beautiful! Can't wait to see the finished product!

    i won't bother to adopt you. i can't claim you on my tax return.

    BUT, if you don't mind being totally corrupted by a warped mind, i'll be glad to take you under my wing. c'mon over anytime. :wink:

    I've got lots of HSTs here, I'll gladly share them with you! :) LOL
    Me too! I have over 1200 tiny ones from trimming up and not throwing away corners!

    They are all about 1 inch - 1 1/2 inches. I don't think I will ever make a doll quilt or miniature pieced quilt, but I just can't throw them out!

    wow, patrice, I really love that and I don't especially love triangles, but you really came up with something great.
    Do you work with triangles a lot or just wanted to do something different this time?
    I'm going to paint my living room when it warms up. These colors would go great. I'm gonna do the walls in a gold faux look and accent with black and cream. My curtains have copper and tomato. So, if your really sick of hst's...lol! :wink:

    I gotta ask, I have had an awful time doing a very thin border like this on my granddaughters quilt. How did you get yours so precise? would be so grateful to know a 'trick', cause I sure ain't finished yet. C

    the block borders you see are made from 1" strips. they are not continuous strips. i cut my fabric into fat quarters first, then cut my strips. i find it easier to control the ruler and blade over the shorter distances. since the blocks are approximately 15" finished, i cut from the 18" side of the FQs and trim off the excess AFTER i've sewn the strips to the blocks.

    when it comes time to make the borders to go around the whole top, i'll probably cheat. that is, i'll cut strips across the whole width of the border fabric, but cut them a half-inch wider than the intended size. once they're sewn and pressed, i'll carefully square them back to the proper width. (unless by some miracle it's actually straight all the way around, in which case I'll "change my mind" about the width of that particular border. why look a gift horse in the mouth? :lol: )

    get some lightweight muslin and use those tiny Ts to make a crazy quilt. ;-)
