Baskets of Squares!
Flippy corners and bonus triangles abounding!
It’s always fun for me when quilters experience an “AHA!” moment ---Each of the Oklahoma Backroads blocks will give you 4 bonus triangles that measure 2” unfinished. It might not sound like a lot, until you realize that if you are making the full quilt, that you will have 440 2” half square triangle units all ready to use in another quilt by the time this quilt is pieced.
What could YOU do with 440 2” bonus half square triangle units? You can do ANYTHING with them!
And of course we love the quilt that spawned those bonus triangles equally as much.
We really did have a good day and accomplished a whole lot….
I posted a picture of Ellen’s green grasshoper yesterday --- and here she is with it! I am really fascinated with this machine…the case folds out to become the extension table….This machine was so well maintained it had all the accessories – the manual – AND the bill of sale!
The machine was purchased on payment on May 28th, 1951 by Mrs. Ronald Van Zine. Her first name remains a mystery ---it was a different era then, women married and not only gave up their maiden names, but signed their names by adding a MRS. to the front of their husband’s name.
Don’t you just love this stuff? I do!!
