I cut all the patterned fabric and the background fabric I needed to make the 240 (yes 240) half square triangles. Using the fantastic tutorial that is part of the quilt-along I'm making four HST at once and using starch for the first time! The background fabric is Cat's Meow from Benartex.
I have completed 15 blocks and I am so pleased with how they look (the stripey fabric had been worrying me a bit). 45 more chevrons to make, but this afternoon I need to work on a secret quilt with a deadline.... it's called Melrose.
