First of 12 pieced #2 triangles
Pressed and pruned back of #1 pieced triangle

Chain piecing the triangles
It occurred to me this would make a great leaders and enders piecing project soooo...., quickly cut a few more of those cheddar bow ties I've had in storage for the past couple of months and got busy piecing those while piecing each row of the triangle blocks - got quite a few pieced too ;-)
Leaders & Enders piecing my cheddar bow ties w/triangle blocks
This is what got finished just today...
and what I have to date - so far there are over 400+ bow ties in this 5 qt. ice cream bucket,
more than half-way to my final goal of 750, looks like I'm going to need another bucket soon ;-)
UPDATE January 14, 2013: Completed 9 of the 12 #2 triangles so far and should finish up the rest this evening. I'll post pics prior to moving on to Easy Street Part VIII:
And here they ALL are - (4) #1 corner triangles AND
(12) #2 perimeter triangles
Did you just see what I just saw? Where's all my critical-eye folks/quilters?? While admiring this pic for like, I don't know, at least the 10th time, I just noticed something. Check out the lower third triangle, left side - one of the foursies is turned wrong, I know because I see a white-on-black 1 1/2" square peaking out where a charcoal grey should be! Aaarrgh!! And I checked these triangles multiple times while pressing and pruning, prior to taking pics and posting, and patted myself on the back when I read of others having to rip...not me, I said to myself, I checked, double-checked, and triple-checked!!!
Well, there's nothin' left to say or write, time to rip and re-stitch and join my fellow Easy Street-ers who've already done the same, looks like I'm in very fine company. ;-)
And now, time to get back to it!
