I'm enjoying a couple of snow days at home working on a quilt. These are triangles needed to make a Lemoyne Star quilt. Each block has eight different purples and violets.
Each row contains five blocks, so I am trying to sew five blocks at a time in assembly line fashion in this order:
1. Chain piece five sets of eight triangles into squares as described above
2. Clip apart the squares and stack into five different stacks.
3. Press the squares
4. Clip the dog ears
5. Trim all squares to be 4 1/2 inches.
6. Lay out one block at a time into the positions they need to be in to make the Lemoyne Star.
7. Sew the pieces together.
I'll do a post soon that shows the process of sewing the pieces together that has been the fastest and easiest way I've found.
Quilting isn't the only thing going on here. I've got a pot of vegetable beef soup simmering as I write! I love snow in the south!
