I have been working on the Rocky Mountain Puzzle quilt . It is the block of the week from Primitive Gatherings . Every week I receive a little package with the fabric for six more 6.5 inch blocks . When I signed up for this I thought every week we would do six different blocks and end up with a sampler quilt but you see every week we do the same block over and over out of different fabrics .
This means that every week I need to make 72 little half square triangles . Twelve for each block - Ten for the block with two left over for the borders .
I have been using 1.5" Thangles to make the HS Triangles and it works well enough but I can't decide if I like the Thangles or my old method of cutting squares drawing the line down the center cutting on the line and trimming to size . Even with the Thangles there is a lot of trimming and cutting apart and you still have the paper to remove .
For this quilt I will stick with the Thangles . This is the way the instructions are written and I am not sure there is enough fabric for another method . Just curious about your methods for HS Triangles- What's your favorite?
Here are last weeks blocks and there is another little package waiting for me in the sewing room .
Hope you are finding some time to stitch .
