Ta Da!!!! Part three of the Orca Bay Mystery is complete.
I didn't have to work today after all so I spent quite a bit of the day making the 350 half-square triangles required for the next instalment of the mystery quilt put on by Bonnie Hunter. This one's not for sissies!
Lots of sewing but not terribly difficult.
Luckily I had Triangle Paper for a finished 1 1/2" HST. This probably saved a day's worth of sewing right there. Using these papers, you know that your HST's will be perfect and so trimming is unnecessary. Thank goodness! Trimming up 350 of the 1 1/2" finishing HSTs would have been too much for me.
The Triangle Paper is so easy to use. First of all I ironed a black fabric and a white fabric right sides together. Next I sprayed on the the Triangle Papers on the back with 505 Basting Spray then stuck it on the top of the fabrics.
Next I sewed with black thread along the dotted lines.
Now I must get busy on my other projects while I wait for Friday's instalment of Part 4.
Are you keeping up?
