Or, Be Still My Heart!
How did I miss noticing this for so long? The Equilateral Triangle die for the AccuQuilt Go! has the size I need for the Pyramid Triangle foundation from Miniatures in Minutes. (Well, actually, it is a smidge large but not so much that it matters).
Here’s a little swap quilt to be. In process:
I used a charm pack and they cut up beautifully. I picked three charms at a time, folded them in half, and laid them on the Go! die.
After the die was run through, I opened up the fabric and was able to run the scrap through one more time.
That method gave me six triangles per charm. But then it occurred to me I could reorient the second run through and get even more. With this next orientation, I got eight triangles a charm. Very little waste!
In no time at all, I had a nice little grouping of perfectly cut pyramid triangles.
I decided to see how the Go! handled linen as well. It handled it perfectly. I cut strips 2 1/2" by 13 1/2". I was able to fold the strip into quarters and run it through the die, then open it up and run it through a second time to catch the open spaces. I got 11 triangles per strip.
And with that combination made up a little mug rug.
I see a bunch more little pyramid quilts in my future. Thank you Go!
