Design wall


This is my Design Wall today. I managed to get 2 blocks of the triangle madness done this week! 10 down 6 to go. I have come up with a method that breaks the rules to get lots of triangles in a large variety without pulling my hair out; not paper piecing. Just a hint; most of the edges of the triangles have bias edges.
I've had a few questions about this quilt so I thought I'd share the basics with you.
  • 16--18"blocks
  • 608 1" finished triangles
  • 608 1-1/2" finished triangles
  • 557 2" finished triangles for sashing (385) and an extra border (172).
  • finished size; 92 X 92... it has 3 borders; but it may change again. Nothing is sure until it is in the quilting stage.

I've found some else who is working on a 'triangle madness' quilt. Her sizes are different but it is looking great....the race is on; who will finish first? Go visit Lori at 'Humble Quilts' and see her version.

Visiting Judy will give you access to other's design wall; that is sure to inspire you.

Those triangle blocks are crazy. I can't even imagine how long each one must take. It is even harder to imagine that there are two of you working on it right now. Best of luck

Oh my! I thought that there was going to be 9 blocks, but there will be 16?!? Wow! That is a crazy number of HST's!!

Hahaha, My blocks are tucked away for now. They come out on a rotating basis:)
I am swapping hst monthly with several other ladies so it's taking us a while to build a variety. Your blocks are looking lovely!!!

I find that quilt intriguing. Is it your own design or a pattern? Any idea where I could get the pattern?
Not that I need another project that is.
