1/2 square triangles...
Well, in that never ending closet...was this quilt top. It was in pieces...I guess I meant to quilt it a little at a time, hand quilting. I found it recently!! And ripped out the quilting that I had done, put the whole quilt together...and the white borders just begged me for applique.
This vine is a start...I will add flowers and leaves and other stuff as it comes to me...or the quilt dictates.
I have saved about every single extra half square triangle I have ever made...and it it time to use them up...or not have them anymore. Yep!! Have to do this!! So I am sliver trimming them to use in a quilt...all the same size, so they will fit together nicely. Tedious, but important, as I have found out, LOL!!
Some pieces and parts from Linda O became this little candle mat...I liked doing the binding and hand quilting!! 60 degree corners!!
And last, but definitely not least...a Ortega green chili can. It wanted to become a pin cushion...so it did.
