I've gone back to working on my Athena's Puzzle quilt. This is only a small part of the blocks I've finished, and there will be many more. If anyone has seen this design completed, you know that they actually are set on the diagonal. However they're sewn together in straight rows and then trimmed.
There will be lots of waste, but I'm sure I can find a use for the partial blocks.
It's an easy pattern; the only tricky thing is sewing the strips in the right order and orientation, but now that I have worked out a system, it's going fairly quickly, and has reached that nice, relaxed, flow state of sewing.
