One of my mum’s fashion advice was: “do NOT mix pink and red together”. I don’t know why, she thought these two colours were not meant to be together. Well, I listened to her……until today.
I had a pink/red quilt in mind for a long time using “X” and “O”s. I didn’t buy any fabric for this project but cut into my pink stash collection. I realised that despite my small fabric stash, I had so many pinks!
It took me several hours to cut all my squares. Am I normal? Seams like a crazy amount of time just to cut fabrics. Where are you Charm Pack? Anyway, I’m glad all these pinks will be sewn together shortly and my pink stash is actually diminishing. Double Yay!I now need to cut the white and start sewing. This has seated on my “to do list” for way to long, I need to find my mojo to actually start it.
I’m confused on how to create the block “X”. I know it is formed with four squares adding white corners on opposite sides. All the instructions mentioned to sew white squares and trim them afterwards. It seems like a waste of fabric, no? Would it be possible to sew triangles instead? Maybe bigger triangles and then trimmed them down? How would you do it? I would greatly appreciate your advice.
