To celebrate the finish I started something new. I really like the look of Lee's new pattern Diamond Tread. It was on sale so how could I resist? I have never worked with HSTs so this is my very first time. I don't have a square ruler which is quite essential for trimming so I made template out of Super60 triangle ruler I have. I tried to make plastic template but it was way too thin.
It might not seem very accurate on the pictures but it works just fine. At least I thought it's going fine until I cut myself. Yeap. Silly little finger got in the way and I have new rotary blade. It's sharp and I have little HST design on my nail too. No pictures. Thank you. It hurts. It bleeds. It sucks but that couldn't stop me. It did for couple of hours but later on I was trimming again. I have never done so much trimming.
I finished few blocks and so far I really like it. I'm using only three solids plus black and white print to make it more interesting. The colors are based on color scheme I have for the backing fabric.
