I spent a large portion of the last two weekends fussy cutting stripes into triangles and piecing them back together again. These photos show only the first batch of blocks to be made. My blocks will finish at 3", 6", and 9". There's no telling how big the quilt will end up!
The first photo includes a couple of blocks with very dark blue triangles. I wasn't sure they would work with the rest of the lighter colors. When I compare the two photos, I definitely prefer the softness of the second version without the darker blocks. (My apologies for the lousy lighting.)
I have a couple hundred striped triangles sitting around my sewing room, just waiting to be pieced into more blocks. I love the look of the single-fabric blocks, but it's so much easier with two fabrics because I don't have to worry about matching stripes! I will continue to make both types of block.
I am linking up to Design Wall Monday at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts, Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt, and Moving It Forward at Em's Scrapbag. Check out all of them for tons of amazing quilting inspiration!
