This week I tackled this stack of fabrics for the BMQG Lowell Quilt Festival challenge. The rules are basically the same as the QuiltCon Block Challenge, create a mini-quilt using the colors of the QuiltCon logo.
I went with my fave, half-square triangles. I threw my 2 1/2" squares in a bag and pulled them out in pairs, à la Denyse Schmidt, to make the HSTs.
Once they were all trimmed they went back in the bag and I chain pieced them in to 10 rows of 10. I tried really hard to just pull them out and stick them on in whatever direction they came out of the bag.
I really need to remember there is no "mini-magic"... sewing together 100 2" squares is no faster than sewing together 5" squares but the end result is only 15" square. At least the quilting will go quickly:-)
