Well, today’s results may not be quite as impressive as last week’s, but it was waaaaay easier!
This one was simply two squares, right sides together. I folded the top square back diagonally and then rolled back the edge. Then I decided to do these little square inserts. In future, however, I will tuck the inserts in before stitching down the edge. Much as it hurts me to say this, planning ahead is a good idea!
This one is based on the same idea, except that I used three squares and made two of them of half-square triangles. By using two colors and folding along the seam, I was able to show the other color when the edges were rolled back.
Then I tried several options for folding inserts or borders. The two on the right are variations of the same method. The light colored one to the left is our old friend the prairie point.
Now we’re getting somewhere! Of course, being all done by hand, it’s a bit wonky here and there. If I were doing this for a finished piece of work, there would be more measuring and marking. At least I hope so! This would look great in color, wouldn’t it?
Here’s all the samples so far, stuck on my design wall. You can see that today’s circle was pretty small – it started with 4-inch squares – so it would probably work up fairly well in a quilt or wall-hanging.
I ran out of time or I might have continued on with squares. There’s lots of cool stuff to come!
