flat irons.......

have been inspired by this antique flat irons block quilt.....


looks way more difficult to me than it actually was......here's the step by step of my first block......using a 60' ruler i cut 2" triangles and a 3&1/4" triangle.....




laid out my triangles and then off they go to the sewing machine, before you know it you've got a flat iron block, not perfection to be sure, but i strived for enjoyment of the quilting process along with a little of that primitive look......










while the iron was hot made a couple more, looks like i'm going with a blackish background and possibly either gold or red for the 5&3/4" alternate triangles....




thoroughly enjoy a day spent at my sewing machine........
