Sometimes I like to make things, just to try it out and mini quilts are a great way to do that.
I was browsing for hints on piecing and found this blog with a tutorial on making triangles, so I just had to try it. You can find the tutorial at That Girl That Quilt and I used the first method. It was fun and easy to do and lots of possibilities. Of course I cannot sew a straight line if my life depended on it, lol.
As you can see, my points are off and my border is wonky, but that seems to be my style lately;) I guess you could call it my antique Easter quilt. It measures about 8" x 10" and the individual half square blocks are 1 1/4". I machine pieced and the rest is hand sewed. When it was done, I used watered down walnut spray, to antique it.
