Design wall

As little sewing as I did this week I managed to get one block of the 'Triangle Madness' done. The upper left is the new one. The first of 6 non-star blocks. IF I'm making this a bed size quilt I'll need to make at least 16 of these instead of the 9 in the original.....I'm not sure I want it on a bed bad enough. What do you think? It will take me another 3 months at this rate to get the blocks done IF I continue at the speedy rate of 1 each week.I am soooo close to finishing 2 tops; One was on the design wall last week and one the week before; A Dresden plate and eye-spy #2. I'll be posting .....tomorrow? with tops done. They each need their outer border and I'm not crazy about doing those.

I've one kid home with a migraine; he got them occasionally when 12, I'm wondering if he's entering a new growth spurt. I did have some headaches this weekend and now I'm sick so it could just be a cold is coming on.

Happy Birthday Granddad!

I think you should make it a bed quilt. It'll be fabulous! But then I don't have to do the work!
Love these blocks!

Oh wow those are intense. I don't know if I'd have the patience to do more than one of those, let alone 9 or 16! Good for you! They are beautiful though!

Your blocks are so pretty. They look hard! Hope you and your son are both feeling better soon.

The more I see of those blocks, the more I like them. I really hope you do a pattern for them. Has to be bed size. LOL
