My attempt of Victoria's PDF pattern

I decided I needed to try the triangle block that Victoria posted. It took a little more than 15 minutes but it was fun to try a challenge.  My points are way off but for a first time I think it looks ok.

To make the paper patterns to sew the fabric on , I traced the pdf that I printed.  My printer stopped working for some reason and I only had one copy so I had to trace them.  I do not have a light box but I have a sewing machine table that has a clear inset for my machine.  Here is how I 'made' my light box.  It worked great.  I guess out of necessity comes invention..

HAHA! Love the light box... PIN YOUR POINTS stick the pin right through the top corner, on the paper, to the Last corner. and also a pin straight through the points sections in the middle, then sew your line when joining your sections... I'm happy people are trying! It's a learning curve! But it works! I love red yellow and blue together too! by the way!

Hey, Not bad for a first try! Fun color and pattern combo, too. This block is fun because it does allow us to experiment with all kinds of colors and fabric designs. It is addicting. Look forward to seeing more blocks.
Love the light box solution. Another solution, which only works on a sunny day, is to tape the pattern to the window and put your tracing paper over it and trace away.
