T is for triangle. As in the Triangle QAL with Paula at The Sassy Quilter (and BTW she has a giveaway running until April 27).
I must say, piecing this quilt is quite a challenge. I managed to put together one strip wrong, by rotating the diamonds the wrong way. Fortunately with the solids it doesn’t matter much, but I’m not so happy with those prints running off at an angle.
So I changed tactics and just made diamonds (two triangles together), then laid them all out again on the bedroom floor to sort them. I pinned all the seams together roughly, and now I am carefully aligning each to sew to the correct length. As you can see, I have left the ends angled, I will figure out those parts later. And no, the final version will not have two gray triangles touching each other, that would bug me. Thank goodness we have an extra week to make our tops, I’m going to need it.
I’ve been sneaking into my sewing room every chance I get to pin or sew a few seams, although tonight I really want to get my taxes filed online (insert sad face)–due date in Canada is April 30.
Oh, and I’ll be making a trip to the Creativ Festival in Toronto this weekend, so I’m sure I will be adding to my stash and project list. Let me know if you’ll be there too!
