Meanwhile, the sewing machine has been working overtime on the Road to Oklahoma quilt. We are hoping to get out there mid-October and I think I've been so afraid I'll
Things really starting moving along when I came up with my assembly line process. Using 2 pieces of sturdy cardboard, I've got 16 - 2 1/2" squares in each of the 12 blocks, stacked one on top of each other, prepped for sewing in the proper order here, photo below. Thought this was one of my more brilliant ideas than getting up and down to go back and forth to the ironing board with every individual block that I was previously doing. :)
Gourmet Quilter's fantastic video on how she created her blocks, using 2 1/2" squares, assembling them together like a 4 patch, as well as how she made her half-square triangles. She has you make secondary, smaller half-square triangles at the same time as your larger 2 1/2" hst for minimum fabric waste and to have another design element already made almost effortlessly. My little basket, below, is filling up with the secondary triangles that I hope to incorporate in this quilt somewhere.
4-H program for years and it's nice to see what our 4-H youth are doing today.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
