The fabric I sent each bee-mate was enough for 2 hrt pairs like those shown below, each block measuring 7x13" unfinished.
My plan back then was simple scrappy rows of half rectangle triangles, like I'd seen others do. I liked the idea then and I like it now. Except that when I finally started putting all the blocks up on my design wall last week, I couldn't resist playing around with them, as I shared a few days ago. As soon as I put up the ziggity-zag layout (thanks to shadowsoftheblueridge for the nudge), I knew that was IT. Though I think of the quilt orientation as being more horizontal, like the first photo in this post, it also looks pretty striking vertical. So you choose.Quilter's Linen (parchment?) there along the bottom.
So with this finish, I accomplish several notable milestones. Most timely is that this project was on my Q4 Finish-A-Long list, accomplished just in the nick of time. Second, these blocks were made by my bee-mates from the now obsolete Always Bee Learning bee. It was really important to me to honor my time with them by completing a quilt with the blocks we had made together. And lastly, creating these blocks and the resulting quilt was challenging yet satisfying, half rectangle triangles being a new technique in my toolbox, one I definitely hope to use again.
