Here are my first attempts. I did have some coffee before I made these, needed to be awake, especially after that reading mistake!
First 2 blocks , sewn and pressed
Now triangles. Note how the little white selvage in the previous picture is now gone.
I made the two blocks the first time and then started making 5 at a time. I have to stop and trim down some of the strings because they are too wide and I want more variety.
I also moved to using spray starch. I normally use the Mary Ellen's Best Press, but I didn't think that I had enough stability as the regular starch. I have made 12 blocks without much of a dent in the box or red strings.
I also made about 100 more of the QSTs from the first clue.
I am off tonight to attend a concert where my DD1 is performing. She sings in the Chorus Polaris in Minneapolis and they are having a Christmas concert with the Golden Valley Orchestra. I will be going with my DS and his wife. Should be fun. We are planning to go out after the concert.
