Over the years I've made many, many quilts and during that process I've thrown away countless triangles. You know the ones...we clip them off of half-square triangles and flying geese units, hold them in our hands uncertainly for a brief second and then let them flutter into the trash can. We think about retrieving them and making something from them, but bigger, more exciting projects are beckoning so we sigh a bit guiltily and turn away, leaving the little leftover triangles in the trash.
Well...I finally decided to save these "waste" triangles from a project I'm working on and see if I can make something that will inspire me enough to save them in the future. Here's what I have thus far:
A pile of tiny half-square triangles in red/gold and blue/gold. Freshly sewn. One Hundred and Forty-Three
1 1/4" squares.
Oh my. What have I done?
