FINALLY! I am going to continue this tutorial that I started way back when for a quick and easy baby quilt.
In that previous post, I showed you how I sewed the 5" squares together to make triangle-squares (half-square triangles, in quilting lingo). This shot on the right is a close-up of the triangle-squares up on my design wall. This is the fun part, arranging and re-arranging them to get just the right placement.
Blocks on the design wall, getting rearranged endlessly!
Now (photo on the right) I've started at the upper left-hand corner of my laid-out squares (on the design wall), and I'm sewing them together in diagonal strips. (To do this, I take one strip at a time down from the wall, laid one block on top of the next.)
Here is a photo of the diagonal strips sewn together. I put them back up on the design wall, as I sew them into strips.
