the top is finished! Notice I added an extra column. Overall size is still only 11" x 16".
See how tiny the pieces ............
It took longer to press the nine-patches than it did to sew them.
Of course, quilting and binding still to go.
Lessons learned: Starch the side biased triangle fabric before cutting. I've read or heard of this tip many times and just ignored or forgot about it. I thought about it after the triangles were cut. Although starching the pieces after cutting helped, it would have been better before and MUCH worse if I hadn't at all. Been there, done that.
