I started out by trying to make my triangles using regular rulers at first. It was complicated and took a lot of time to figure out, but I had almost got it. And that was when I realized I wouldn't have enough fabric to make this method work.
So I broke down, found some coupons in my inbox and bought the silly tri-recs ruler set at Joann's for half off. It was a very good move; well worth the money!
I finished making my test set and started cutting into the real fabric. After I made my largest triangles (6 inch tall blocks) I ran into a big problem. I started thinking about what came after the trees and realized I need easily twice as much sky blue as I have. Oh no! I bought this fabric forever ago, so getting more is almost certainly out of the question.
|The blue already used is in the back.|
I really don't want to have to take out what I've already done and start over with something new, but I didn't plan on this being scrappy. I scrounged around in my stash and came up with the following options to consider supplementing the blue I've already started with. I'm not convinced any of them are working for me, so I'll probably be heading out to the store in the next few days to see what I can find...
So, what would you do? Go scrappy or find a new blue and start over?
