When I don't have much idea of what to sew, or I've reached a stalemate in a current project, I often just make HST, on spec. I cut a lot of scraps into this triangle shape, so there's always plenty on hand and it involves nothing more strenuous than matching two fabrics together,
I have a container of 2 1/2" ones, and another of 2" finished squares.
I began sewing Broken Dishes units with the 2 1/2" pile and have amassed quite a box full.
I then sewed some into 12" squares, using nine of the smaller blocks. I love the rich colours I'm using, and so far I feel no urgency to rush ahead and make heaps of them. At the moment I'm happy to just potter and plod along whenever I feel like it.
I used 2" HST to make this smaller block, containing just four of the broken dishes units,
I'm not looking to finish anything from these blocks yet, I'm just playing with possibilities.
