Love those triangles
Sometimes in the process of making quilting blocks I end up with small triangle off cuts.
I have to confess I find it very hard to part with these pieces, especially if there is a whole batch of them in the same colour.
The blocks to the left are the result of left over triangles from quilt projects.
I just need to trim the rabbits ears and square them up for a scrappy project that is yet to happen.
When I made my block for this project I ended up with 8 pink and 8 cream triangles which were too pretty to part with (in my opinion).
I pieced them together to make 2 pin wheel blocks, joined them together, stuffed them, and made a cute little pincushion, 4 inches square.
Just my way, I guess, of justifying keeping those little triangle shapes - oh dear.
