Today, I decided to make this block using Victoria's tutorial over at 15 Minute Play. It is made with may triangles - 36 in fact. It is about 13 x 13. I started by taking a few smaller pieces of made fabric and putting them together. Then I cut my first eight triangles. Then I pulled colors from the stash shelves. I wanted to use some of my larger scraps, and that is what I did, except for the yellow and the corner setting triangles. These two came from the wonderful stash swap. When I had it all together, and it went together easily, I did have some pucker in the center. That was caused by my apparent inability to sew a straight line and not from the tutorial. I just steamed the heck out of it, and it now lays pretty flat. I think I will make more of these blocks as I get the urge. Isn't it funny that I am really attracted to warm colors, but I keep using these cool colors? I plan on making a warm one next.
The weather guessers are predicting snow for us for the weekend. That would be very lovely, but I never count on it until it actually starts falling. We are stocked with veggies and I have plenty of projects to work on. Let it snow!
Joyful quilting, everyone.
