DJ F6

F6 is a modified 9-patch. I first cut out the solid squares, then constructed the squares-on-point. I formed the larger 9-patch and lastly, appliqued the small melons. I could have been more careful with the melons since they are off-center, but "finished is better than perfect."

DJ TRC


I think it's time to do another corner. I picked the top right because it's the number of pieces except for the applique one. It's actually very easy. The star is in a square which is then "sashed" to the correct shape for a corner. Just remember that the points of the stars are made up of 4 triangles (one HST plus two others.) I then sewed these to the "flying geese" triangles and the rest is constructed like a 9-patch. The last thing I did was applique the 5-pointed stars. I suppose the points could be pointier...

DJ TR2


Brenda drafted TR2 so the top triangle was flat on the bottom, but Jane's looked like an arrowhead and I thought that looked cool. Since I was redrafting anyway, I took the liberty of making the central triangle into one with a point instead of truncating it like in Brenda's draft. Brenda's is probably easier to piece since you won't have the slight inset seam with multiple seams conjoining.

DJ H11


There are a number of 4-pointed stars scattered throughout the quilt. H11 has a pinwheel in the center, and once again I had trouble getting them all to meet in the center. They're off by a hair.

DJ B12


I couldn't decide how to do B12. In the end I went with my first thought and pieced it, but it could easily be appliqued. The center "square" is not square at all, but has concave edges. Making is a square ruins the delicacy of the piece, but would make construction easier.

DJ G3


So many people do G3 early because it has so few pieces. What held me back was the placement of the center "clover" in relation to the "racetrack." Eventually I settled on using a modified "Elly Unspellable" technique, using two squares and cutting the applique out as I went. I'm still having trouble with inward points, but I chose the fabric to help hide them.

DJ RS1


I haven't done a triangle challenge in a couple of weeks. Instead I've been picking triangles at random when I feel "behind." RS1 reminded me of TR2 without the center and top triangles and with a couple of strips on the bottom. It was fairly easy to redraft and self-explanatory to construct.

DJ H2


Give up trying to figure out just what the angles are for the interior triangles in H2. This is another "odd shape" like C2, E4, and H4. To make construction easier, I turned the triangles into diamonds and sewed them together as if they were a skewed 9-patch. The outside went on, with the two appliqued triangles completing the block.
