Heather Flegel asked the Hope Circle of Do. Good Stitches to create Half Square Triangles with Stitch & Flip Triangles. I began with four 5" chartreuse and Kona white Half Square Triangles. Then I added stitch and flip triangles to the white halves in her selected color scheme. All the other 9" blocks with have monochromatic centers surrounded by white, with Stitch and Flip Triangles in assorted coordinating colors.
Jill Fisher of Pie Lady Quilts asked the New Blogger Bee to create two improv trees using the tutorial at Pinkadot Quilts. There were no size parameters, and due to the free-pieced nature of the process, every tree will be unique. Jill requested a low volume background.
My greatest challenge wasn't the improv piecing; it was putting together the pieces after my children decided it would be fun to toss them into the air like confetti. At least my directional birds gave some indication as to how the pieces should be reassembled. Next time I do slice and insert, I'm doing a single slice at a time.
