This week's Marvelous Monday Mini was fun, though I departed from the instructions to make the block.
I took one look at the 'draw a line corner to corner on 1.5" squares and sew on either side of the line' direction and said a big 'Nope!' Instead, I grabbed a couple of handy 3" squares and did the 8-in-1 trick.
A bit of squaring up to get those teensy weensy 1" HSTs
and I was (almost) done. The only problem with the 8-in-1 trick is that you only get eight HSTs, and I needed nine.
So, I made and trimmed one more HST, this time using a couple of scraps, and filled in that center.
Some 1" strips were added as the borders, and another week is done!
I've made better triangle points in my time, but these pieces are so tiny that I'm not going to unpick and re-sew. It's certainly good enough for a galloping horse - even a lumbering turtle would have a hard time spotting such itty bitty booboos!
