First I dug through my stash for solids including some from a mini charm pack that somehow found its way home with me and part of two mini charm packs that I got in my goodie bag from the Quilt Alliance, Quilters Take Manhattan home ticket. I also used yardage cut into 2" wide strips. I cut the triangles with my "peakie" ruler. I had to trim off 1/2" from the 2 1/2" squares, then cut the triangle shape.
Each row is going to have 8 triangles and two setting triangles on the end.
I cut those with the "spike" ruler, also from 2" pieces.
The little notch at the top of the spike ruler helps you to align the setting triangle for sewing.
I've got two rows done so far and now I'm working on making more tiny made fabric.
This is fun! Thanks for the challenge, Victoria! :D
And people say I am crazy when I use my small pieces to sew together! Wait till they see this!! ;) Way too cute!!!
this is gonna be fabulous! great start!
Loving the look of this. Isn't that book great for inspiration :)

Your mini is well on the way to being a beauty.
I own and love that book, too. Your 'made fabric' triangles will add sparkle to this Amish beauty. Brilliant!
I love this. I am going to do the same thing but using my tumbler shape ruler. Thanks for the inspiration.
