The QAL started last week with the cutting instructions. You can use the templates in the pattern or use a Tri Recs ruler. I bought the ruler last year for a project I saw online, but now can't remember which one. LOL
I just discovered that you can use the second part of the ruler (for the side triangles) to make HRTs. I've been wanting to try HRTs but have been avoiding them because I thought they were a little tricky. I found this tutorial, and I'm going to give it a try.
You don't always need a specialty ruler, but to me, the cost is worth it. There's no thinking involved, but I love the notched edges to help you match up pieces. I need all the help I can to ensure accurate piecing.
The colours for my triangles are actually a lot brighter than they appear in this photo.
These are the low volume triangles.
And blue for the background.
We'll get the next set of instructions on Friday, so stay tuned for more exciting photos once I start piecing the blocks.
