points!

Can you believe it?
I didn't lose any points on this one!!

I know it was that fancy trianglesonaroll paper I was using
But...
I still want a few brownie points for doing it!


You just don't know how I struggle with getting things to
Match up!
truth be told...I don't usually worry about it too much.

It was kind of exhilarating to finally have a quilt come
out looking so .....well......perfect.
It is a small one.
And I did have those little triangle papers.
And I did slow down a bit.....

I really DO need to slow down!

Here's the back.

I pieced in the baby's name to the quilt back instead of

adding it as an appliqued tag afterwards.
Fun, huh?

Details for you out there who like that kind of thing.;)

  • Simple diagonal quilting lines.
  • Each block is 4"
  • 64 blocks altogether.
  • 6" wide white border.
  • Quilt measures - 43"x43"

Have fun quilting today!

I'm adding this to sew and tell friday!

  6. Juuuust lovely! There is something about a quilt done totally with half square triangles that really appeals to me. Like the back, too. Good job!

  10. Looks perfect! Those paper things are great - I use them, too, and it's worth the tedium of picking off the paper for those points!

  11. beautiful! the only thing I ever tried with triangles made me run right back to squares! I'll have to check out that trianglesonaroll of which you speak! Never heard of it (I haven't heard of lots of things though... I will milk the 'i'm new to quilting' excuse as long as possible!)

  13. I know, matching is overrated, but this is beautiful--the fabrics are wonderful, and great backing. Slowing down--maybe underrated? Good work!

  15. This points are great! Great job. I have a similar sewing philosophy. Sometimes when I slow down and take care it still doesn't match and then other times when I am not so careful everything comes together wonderfully. Go figure.
