FOTY 2015 – mid-October

FOTY 2015 Rectangles - mid-October
FOTY 2015 Rectangles – mid-October

Another thing I did on PlayDay was to cut up my Ta Dots fat quarters into 10.25″ squares. I did this in anticipation of making half square triangles. As I did that cutting, I took the opportunity to cut up a lot of FOTY 2015 quilt rectangles.

I am not planning on letting these patches lay around all year next year. I am working on cutting pieces I need for various projects from the yardage I have pressed and plan on working on this piece early in the year.

Note that I said “plan”. We’ll see how it goes.

This plan was set in motion by my need to cut a lot of different fabrics for the HSTs and Flying Geese I needed for the Carpenter’s Wheel. The Ta Dots HSTs were an added bonus. Getting fabric off of the ironing board has made me feel like I am making progress, even if I am just cutting.

The black and white stripe at the bottom is one of the stripes that will be used as the other half of the HSTs.
