I can answer yes to all those questions. The nameless project started out as 2-1/2" white squares and a bag full of an assortment of triangles left from mitering binding and other projects. They were were all bagged together and stuck in the retreat bag. I know they have been living in the retreat bag since at least 2017. Three years isn't a very long time but I've decided to make some progress since there was no quilting retreat this spring.
After piecing some of the blocks, I decided there was just too much white. I like white in quilts, I love the brightness and how it makes bright fabrics even brighter and also makes dreary fabrics happy. But there is such a thing as too much white.
I got the idea to sew a triangle onto the opposite corner.
I previewed a couple different arrangements.
This setting has two colored triangles meeting in the corner with white in the other two.
This does not appeal to me at all, too much chaos
But I like this arrangement and this is what I'll go with.
This is another easy start and stop project but I admit, trimming is quite time consuming!
I sewed several of the blocks together so I could see how they looked.
This is a straight set.
I'm going to go with the straight set.
In a perfect world each block would finish at a perfect 8" but I'm not a perfect sewist and this is not a perfect world.
I'll work at this project until I tire of it then back into the retreat bag it will go.
