The Indian Hatchet blocks have been sewn into a flimsy. I love this quilt!
A variety of light fabrics were used as the background. They seem to give a yellow tint in some places.
Most of the corners are triangles left from flippy corners or from mitering binding.
The little blocks finish at 2" so there are a lot of side seams. I cut a 1.5" red border to add a stop to all the happy scrappiness and to keep the seams from unsewing.
The flimsy measures 67" by 83". I'm going to be keeping this one. This quilt is as improv and modern as I get.
I first posted about this project in June 2020 when I was calling these blocks the nameless blocks.
If you go back and read the June 2020 post, you'll see that I didn't originally plan to make Indian Hatchet blocks.
The original idea was to sew a scrap triangle on one corner of the background fabric. The plan at that time was to use the Remainders pattern from Amanda Jean Nyberg's book, No Scrap Left Behind. (Here is a link to Amanda's blog when the book was first published. If you scroll down the post, you'll see her Remainders quilt.)
The Remainders quilt is nice but, for me, it was just too much background fabric and not enough color. I decided to make a change to my block and I'm very glad I did!
I've used a lot of bonus triangles in this quilt but there are still a lot left in the box! Someday another bonus triangle quilt might be pieced, but not right away.
