To try the new idea of cutting isosceles instead of right triangles, I got out some scrap 2 1/2″ strips and bought a new quilting ruler and started cutting. I wanted to incorporate the modern quilting idea of negative space, so one color is solid cream. Here are the two triangle pieces sewn together for the first quadrant.
It till take 8 triangles to make the “circle” or finished block. Before long there are many of them and they are going together nicely.
Here I added the triangles to square up the block. The size to cut the triangles was not intuitive, so I guessed at the size and figured I could square the block later.
Squared and adorable!
I had visions of doing many more, but after 2 blocks, the thrill was gone. I sashed them with self fabric and they are now the newest addition to the pot holder drawer!
