TNT goes Old School

So for the Sew Bee Create group this month Lisa asked us to make some Union Star blocks.  She had even cut all of the fabric ahead of time for us.  So fabulous!!!    However, I was a little taken back when I looked at the instructions sent with to notice that it had us piecing the old school way.  You remember, piecing triangles instead of HST's.  And where the fabric was already cut there was no way to alter the pattern to do it New School.  So ya, It was a bit of a throw back for me.  Not all of my points are perfect, I guess I need to work on those old school methods some more :)



So that is what I was trying new.  Some Old School piecing.  Fun, but ya, I totally love my HST's  and am glad I don't have to do old school all the time.  Especially with tiny triangles :)

So what have you been up to???  Can't wait to see your links :)

  3. Great job, although I think I'd be petrified of screwing up if I were sent all precut pieces!
