I've been steadily working on Jen Kingwell's pattern Long Time Gone. The next section of the pattern I chose to work on was the 60 degree triangles.
I happened to have this ruler set from Quilt In A Day that was useful for making this style of triangle, so I was happy to find another use for it.
Unfortunately, the size I needed to make for Long Time Gone did not match the size in the pattern that came with the ruler, so I had to wing it.
I started with a strip of fabric and cut the central triangles from that using the ruler.
For the side triangles, I started with rectangles and cut them on the diagonal.
Because I was "winging it" I underestimated the size of rectangle I needed and had to re-cut them again. Now I have a bunch of odd triangles left over, but I can use them later when I get to the pineapple blocks.
Eventually, I had all the triangles cut correctly, and I sewed them into units:
30 units ready to go!
Number of pieces in this Triangle section: 90
Number of pieces in Long Time Gone so far: 259
