Well, as it turned out, I wasn't particularly CREATIVE tonight, despite the fortune from last Saturday night's Chinese fortune cookie. For the past few evenings, all I've been doing is trimming up half-square triangles and putting them up on the design wall. And then turning each of the pieces around, depending on my whim each evening.
This photo was taken a couple nights ago--Halloween, I think. This was when I had two "blocks" up on the design wall. This was when I wanted a red center for each with a white star because I thought it would be more striking. This was after I'd first put up the pieces and realized I'd have a white center with a red star, and so I turned them all around.
So last night, when I got the pieces up for the third block, I realized that if I "connected" these blocks with red squares (see the open squares between the two blocks?), I'd have a lot more red than I had white, and that wasn't what I wanted. Or did I? Maybe I needed to sleep on it.
Yes, less red/more white. So tonight I turned each of those 144 half square triangles around. Then I cut more half square triangles so I had a fourth block on the wall and the beginning of a fifth. Of course, I still have to do the center stars and cut those white squares--which may or may not look like what I want. But it's a process.
So maybe it IS creative? But it feels a little too tedious to be creative.
AND I still need to decide what to do with the triangular spaces on each side, top, and bottom--what would be setting triangles if they were just plain pieces filling in where the blocks ended, but I think whatever I use to fill those spaces will be at least partly pieced. Or maybe appliqued? Now THAT might be creative. So maybe I'll get to that part NEXT Friday. Now that's a thought!
