Yesterday was errand day but I did get some more blocks made. I chipped away at more of the ice on the driveway and have it about 2/3 cleared now. That ice is heavy! And of course they are predicting more snow.
I thought I should address this comment left yesterday.
Good Morning - do you cut the 6", 4.5" and 2.5" for a particular reason. Do you find these sizes easier to work with for the type of quilts you make - I was surprised you didn't have any 3 or 3/12".
The answer to why I cut the sizes I do: Know thyself. I know what I use most often, what I can cut down into other sizes without having to take the same 92 blue fabrics off the shelf again to cut one piece. As far as why I didn't cut 3 or 3.5"? It is a simple math solution. 6.5" + 4.5" + 2.5" = 13.5" or 3/8 of a yard. There simply wasn't enough of most of the fabrics to cut 2 more sizes of strips. I have a lot of half yard cuts. By the time I do a clean up cut and then cut 13.5" there is about 4" left.
I can easily cut a 4.5" strip into a 3" strip and have a 1.5" strip left over. Also 2.5" and 4.5" work with each other in many patterns. If you want to do a lot of cutting, you just have to know yourself and your most used sizes.
As far as questions on other methods of triangles, I have discussed that before here which has links to previous posts about Thangles also. I have also shown rulers here which give the same end product.
Last night we had an excellent program at computer club. This is a site you may want to check out if you want to know which over the counter medicines are rated the best for each ailment. Mr. Georgis is very ethical and did lots of research for 3 years for the information on his site. He told us that there are very few medicines that you need prescriptions for any more because most of them have become available OTC.
