Then Foursies ...
The big difference is my pieces are cut at 2-1/2", instead of 2". AND, I am only making one quadrant or one fourth of the quilt.
After making a mountain of HSTs over the last few weeks,
I began pairing a HST with a solid square to make a twosie. Next, pairing twosies to make 4-patch units, some with light background squares and some with random dark squares.
The way I remember how to orient the pairs is I see butterflies or kissing triangles.
When I realized I had enough 4-patch units to make a 64-unit "block," I paired a light with a dark and churned and chained those little beauties into twosies, then foursies ... and finally 8 together in a row.
I think I need more variety in my scraps so I won't stitch these rows together.
Three more to go!
