It's all her fault...


If it hadn't been for Victoria, NONE of the following would have / could have happened.  I'm not blaming you, V.,  just pointing out how influential you are. (smile)

Once upon a time, in the year 2012,  a "long" time ago in this cyber age, Victoria introduced Triangles Galore.  I was hooked and made about 32 blocks ( I haven't counted!).  For me the challenge was not to make small triangles of made fabric, though I did make three or four of those, but to figure out what wonderful color combinations I could put together in making the block. The pattern on the fabric didn't matter to me... just the color. Consequently I was able to use lots of different fabrics.  It certainly helped make a dent in the stash.

Over the holidays I decided to figure out how to finish up and make a flimsy.    25 blocks,  each 14 inches square, on point.  Hmmm.  That was the beginning of one BIG quilt.  So many fabrics in the center needed a similar collage to balance it, hence the BIG made fabric of the last post.  Each corner measures 51x51 inches with a 73" diagonal (or something like that.  I have described the process on my blog.
