Yesterday we met to begin the first clue of Bonnie's Winter Mystery
The now traditional cake and below the labels I made using purchased prepared fabric sheets and our ink jet printer.We meet at the Chandler Police Station a nice big room for us to spread out our "stuff"!
This first clue surprised us all it seemed too easy, 296 Half Square Triangles in grey and neutral. My grey is the blue with stars as in the pic below.
All are now sewn but most still need to be cut and pressed. I used the "eight at a time" method but others had their own preferences, I find this to be accurate and fast, I do not like fussing with nearly 900 separate tiny triangles!
Here is a link to a tutorial on this method on Craftsy, no need to repeat it here.
It requires only sewing diagonally both direction either side of a drawn line.
Then cut four times, horizontal and vertical
then corner to corner each direction.
