My One Monthly Goal for July was to add 4-patches to my L&E challenge Shoo Fly blocks, and I was madly making 4-patches until my drawer of 2.5" strips was empty. Then I tried the layout:
all my 4-patches, and less than half my shoo flies.
I found that the 4-patches were overwhelming the shoo flies, and much too cumbersome. More importantly, this was missing the real target: to use all the shoo fly blocks.
Move the goalposts!
Keep it on point.
Add 1.5" sashing with neutral cornerstones
More work but much more satisfying. And so it continued until 61 of the 64 shoo fly blocks were included.
After adding the setting triangles my goal has been achieved.
I still have to trim the setting triangles and then I think I'll add a border, even though I'm not really a border person.
Measurments: 45" (114.5 cm) squareFabrics: sashing and setting triangles: "Basic Twist" by Stoffafabrics; the rest from scraps.
