More photos of what is happening with the Wisteria strips from Eleanor Burns' Zoey line for Benartex Fabrics.
I needed eight of these "split four patches."
Of course, they need this seam allowance, so I couldn't just cut four-patches in two.
I also needed to piece four-patches to the ends of some strips.
Since this roll of fabrics was purchased last January, I searched the internet for an additional Zoey print. I've purchased two prints from the line to use in borders, and they've been here for a while. Yardage of these prints are fast disappearing from on-line shops that I've had experience with. So, I decided to go with pure white, telling myself that the quilting will show up nicely.
Next I needed half square triangles that would finish with two inch and four inch sides. I keep moving my sewing stuff around and have no idea where my 2-decades-old triangle rulers are!
Then I remember that even longer ago I had purchased a couple of boxes with a wide variety of templates. These may have been from Quilting from the Heartland, but I no longer have the original box.
However, the set contained both needed sizes of triangle templates, so I did some more cutting and piecing.
This is going to be a really beautiful quilt, but I'm starting to feel more than a little anxiety that our school will begin so soon, and I want this top ready for quilting at least! (August 4th is such an early start date--and is happening because of the pressures of No Child Left Behind, Common Core Curriculum Standards, and Standardized Testing.)
