First of all, go see Sally T's fabulous demented top HERE, because she is all the kinds of awesome and has already finished hers!
My own dementia is lagging behind, but I keep puttering at it. It's an ongoing process.
First, I stitch triangles. Lots and lots of triangles.
And throw them in a bag as I go.
I need 2048 of them. Yeah. Two thousand and forty-eight little HSTs.
But the good news is that I'll only need 1024 of these little 4-patch units. Things are looking better already!
And if I sew four 4-patches together, like this -
why, I'll only need 256 of these 6" blocks! 256 isn't hardly scary at all!
And if I sew four of those together into a 12" block -
I'll only need sixty-four! Things are really looking up, right? Sixty-four is like practically normal.
And, hey! If I take four of those blocks and sew them together -
I'll only need sixteen of them! Sixteen blocks? Easy peasy, right? I could make sixteen blocks in my sleep. Totally doable. And hardly demented at all.
Hmm... I think I'm going to need more triangles, though...
