I am back to working on the second Spiky 16 Patch donation quilt.

Over the long weekend, I got a chance to sew together some of the bias rectangles I had prepared. It turns out I made a lot of the ones I already had and very few of the ones I needed. Sigh.

I sewed the ones I had prepped together anyway and cut the 5 inch strips required for the rectangles. I was cutting for the Stepping Stones, as mentioned, and just used some of the same blues and greens I was using for the Stepping Stones to prep more.

There is something comforting and satisfying about making these Bias Rectangles. I really like the Split Recs ruler. I think it works really well. Yes, I trim, but I get really nice HRTs out of the process and they are a joy to sew. I am trying to think of different blocks to make from HRTs. I have units to make several more of these Spiky 16 patch blocks, except for the HRTs of which I am chronically short. πŸ˜‰

I did finish this block and I am pleased with it. These are really nice blocks. I will lay out the piece on point when I get a chance.

  1. I got the Split Rects ruler. Now ready to try some spikes on my blocks… what size do you make them? I made the 16 patch blocks like you do…out of 2 1/2 inch squares.

    I love how these look!

  2. I know what you mean, I learned about right-handed and left-handed HRT the hard way, think I still have a dozen if the wrong ones someplace (UFO limbo).
    I love these spiky stars, fun new shape, great colors too. Will make a super guilt!
