Part 2 in my adventure with Oh, Fransson! Aviatrix Medallion QAL.
Last night I started the first border, made up of half square triangles in a selection of 5 neutrals. I chose a silvery-brown, could even be called a taupe, for my neutral palette.
There are so may options for making half-square triangles (HST). Elizabeth has you cut 3" squares, then cut the squares diagonally and sew the triangles together then trim to size.
I decided to give Quilt Time's Triangle Genie a whirl. My sister gifted me this nifty tool last Christmas. She has video tutorials on her website, but the instructions are clear and easy to understand.

|Instructions are easy to understand.|
I cut 3" long strips, matching up light and dark. Lined-up the Triangle Genie and marked my cut lines. Then I noticed something.
|What are those bubbles??|
Sew 1/4" on both sides of the purple cut line.
I really like the Triangle Genie.
Cut up all my HST on the purple cut lines.
Pressed and trimmed.
I like the taupe-brown borders. It adds some warmth to the overall look.
How is everyone else coming along with Aviatrix Medallion QAL?
