I've been assembling Twinkle Star parts
into lovely stars and stacking them up.
I'm up to fourteen so far.
And I've got ten of the little stars that will be the intersections of the sashing.
Which means I've really got to start working on them, since I'm going to need a bunch.
I'd been doing flippy corners for the blue triangles in the four corners of the star block, but it occurred to me that, while I might have plenty of the blue fabric, it was still possible that I might not. Since it's something that came out of stash (and someone else's stash at that) I have no idea how old it is and whether I can get more.
So, I decided to be a little less profligate with it, and pulled out my Easy Angle ruler to cut triangles instead of squares.
I worked out that if I put the 1" line of the ruler even with the top edge of the square, I could cut the corners off the background squares,
and have perfect corners to stitch up.
(I would brag that I got all mathy and stuff, and calculated where the ruler should go, but the truth is, I just folded one of the blue squares diagonally, set it down on the corner of the block, then lined up the ruler with where the seam allowance would be. Empiricism is my friend.)
Now my design
Gotta finish up that rainbow.
And think of a name for it...
