Are you familiar with Ta -Da's ? Well I have become very familiar with them and they are a life saver but if I don't see another for a while I won't be tooo ..... disappointed either . In Sept. our quilt guild gave us the opportunity to do a mystery quilt , now I didn't have to sign up but I am an easy push over and it sounded like fun . It is now Jan. and I am still on the month of Oct. as far as my progress goes , pretty sad huh! The upper picture represents the quilt minus the borders all cut and many many half square triangles made , the last ones to be made are under the machine so you can see just what a ta-da looks like , it is continuous sewing then you cut along the solid lines and you end up with 84 (I think) half square triangles . Now this is ingenious and as I said saves a lot of work . This quilt has a lot of HST(half square triangles),one color combination you needed 240 and the other three combinations were each 160 , now that is a lot of triangles don't you think?I do have everything cut except the borders and will start now to assemble blocks , they are 16" blocks and I must make 20,quite a task when I am so far behind but it is entirely my own fault , I started too many other projects instead of keeping up each month :-( Good thing this isn't a marathon .
You are probably wondering what became of the jumper , well I did get it constructed as far as I could , I need a zipper and didn't have one to fit so I will have to make a trip to town and I couldn't just not sew this afternoon so was a good girl and did that last Ta - Da ;-)
