|scraps ready to be trimmed|
Someone was working with yellow, white, and blue strip sets, probably cutting precise triangles, and tossing away these wonky 2-color triangles (over 250 by my count). That's enough usable fabric for a lap quilt, if I can come up with a plan.
First I made them the same size. I straightened the bottom strip on each chunk to a width of 1-1/4", and using my Fons and Porter 60-degree Pyramid ruler, they were trimmed to become 3-1/2" tall triangles.
I cut some extra triangles from 3-1/2" wide strips of coordinating fabrics from my stash, and now the challenge of layout options.
|totally experimental, option #1|
|option 2, but I see "radioactive" hexagons|
|safe pinwheels, option #3|
