I'm Into Triangles Too!!



#1)   Thank you for all the nice comments on my Granny Squares Quilt.  It's just so funny how some quilts turn out awesome, and some are just nice but not great, and some are big flops (I'm talking about my own quilts here!)  BUT, when you start them, they all seem destined to greatness.  I mean, why would you start a new project if you didn't think it was gonna be the best yet?!  But somewhere along the way, most of them just kinda lose it, ya know?:)  That Granny Squares quilt though?  I have to thank Rachel for asking me to make a quilt or I'm sure those first two blocks would have ended up on "The Pile".  So ya, I didn't think that quilt would be anything special, but by the time I was done it, I knew that it was one of those that just magically worked out!

So, all that to say,  thank you!  I've had my day made awesome many times over by your enthusiasm with it, and I hope to see more versions of this quilt in your own way!

#2) This won't be as long-winded as #1...  I've been without my computer for a few days, so if you haven't heard back from me for any reason, that's why.

#3)  And now, for sewing room progress reports!  I've got so much to say and show you, but I have a bit of a backlog here... anyways, above photo is just a snippet of a project that I basted today.  I'll be showing you more soon.  (it's mostly made with Brrr... by Laurie Wisbrun which will be out in a few months!)

  1. You won't believe it, but last night I dreamed about a quilt just like this. I was pulling fabrics into a lovely stack (although mine was peachy instead of cherry red) and thought they'd make a nice pyramid quilt. The measuring tape fabric was in my stack :)

  3. Oooh! I've seen a preview of this fabric and just love it (and I'm really liking how you've used it with triangles). Can't wait to see the finished project!

  8. I like the black and white prints you added here, Jolene! I think your triangles quilt is going to be about the opposite of mine - orderly and refreshing. I like them both, of course! Fun to see =)
