The humble square. Such a basic shape, but with a little imagination it turns into something pretty amazing!
Four squares, stitched into diagonal seams on one larger square and you get four diamonds! Hey, that was pretty quick and easy. You might think I’d be ready to move on to the next shapes, but that would be too easy.
I have to admit that I spent way too much time futzing with that center piece. The sensible thing would have been to add horizontal and vertical seams and set them with folded squares. In fact, the book actually describes doing just that! But that would have called for a little planning, and where’s the fun in that?
After this, I’m not sure what happened. I remember pricking my finger. Maybe I dozed off. Maybe it was magic. There are no progress photos, so faerie folk may have been involved.
The next thing I knew, some time had passed. And wait ‘til you see what I found in front of me . . .
I wonder what the faeries will do with triangles?
