When I first started making Bonnie Hunter quilts, the blocks were more kitchen sink type blocks. Bonnie has refined her scrappy approach to a more color controlled scrappy style. So my bonus triangles, are now baggies that are one color. I don't know if any one quilt will make enough triangles to make it's own quilt. So that is a worry for later.
The pattern was from an Addicted to scraps column in the March/April 2012 quiltmaker magazine
the mock up of the quilt shows 80 blocks 8 x 10. I will have to see if I like it that way. I really like the look of just the block.
I generally sew the bonus triangles at the time I am sewing the original block. Then I throw them in a drawer. Every now and then, I open the drawer, panic at the chaos, and determine to do "something" with the mess. I have a couple of marathon pressing and trimming sessions, and then, count and baggie them. I usually love the process, and so I am more likely to use them and make them again. I am really happy that Bonnie has "invented" the bonus triangle buddy. I really use it, and it has helped with the trimming process.
When I opened the box, I have 28 blocks, only 52 more to go.
