As I work, I'm always thinking about the way I do things -- is it easier, does it make sense, could it help a newbie, am I the only one... While a couple of tips have been mulling around in my mind, I haven't had time to take pictures. Visits from family trump blogging any day. What can I say?
I'm linking up with Connie at Freemotion on the River today to show my progress on Mary's Triangles before it outgrows my design wall (and before y'all get totally tired of hearing about MT).
[Oh, here's a tip: Use a flannel-backed plastic tablecloth as a design wall. But you probably knew that already. Next Tuesday I'll show you a non-destructive way to hang one and other neat things to do with them, so stay tuned!]
Anyway, I have decided to group the blocks by triangle color since I had several fabrics in my starting group that were in coordinating colorways. And also because my brain just requires a semblance of organization, even in a scrappy quilt. I can't help it. It's me.
|MT as of 6/24|
Since last reporting I have added a round of rusty rose triangles. Rather than continuing with this scheme for the rest of the quilt, I am considering some different settings for the corners. The beauty of MT is the variety of setting options. Basically, anything that works for HSTs or log cabins will work for MT. Judy Martin's log cabin books have been a great inspiration.
I'm hoping to get the center rows together this week as I think this is as wide as it will be.
Thanks for visiting today. And come back soon.
