|Grandmother's Choice Block 30 Broad Arrow|
This was my first version.
You may remember my Easy Street fiasco and the pile of brown triangles I removed from the quilt top and then decided I would pair up with squares from my scrap box. After moving them around on my cutting table for several weeks, it was time to sit down and sew!
|I ended up with 128 Half Square Triangles.|
This setting uses 120.
|Whoa! It sure gets small when you sew these guys together!|
|I thought I would use the eight leftover HST's at the corners in the border....|
|...but decided I liked them this way better to extend the points.|
|I hand quilted in concentric lines in the fold of the triangles extending through the border.|
I decided to use a scrappy binding.
Yeah, I have a box of binding scraps, too.
|I really like the way the colors sparkle against the browns.|
I'm glad I didn't throw those brown triangles away!
