I am not sure why I have always been scared of sewing together triangles. Once I got it out of my mind that I was doing any thing other then sewing straight lines, things got started pretty fast.
Sewing these triangles were simple. Grab 2 put the together and then sew. I realized after I started that my sloppy cutting was going to hurt me. Good thing for me every thing is on a bias and its willing to stretch to fix my issues.
Some are scared of sewing bias. I have long got over that fear. Some say that you must starch the crap out of these triangles to sew them, I did not. I simply make sure every thing is ironed well and sew them while holding them in place as I sew.
Once I got my 2 sewn together I then sewed the 2's into 4's and then sewed 1 4, 1 2, and 1 pair together (I wanted 7 triangles wide) It all went really well I think, I have been inspired from this quilt.
Any way it was fun to sew these triangles and I am going to sew many more in the future.
I have had so much fun making these triangles that I sat down with EQ7 and designed out a couple of patterns to make using triangles forming hexies with them. Can't wait to share them with you one day.
