Triangles again.........

Here are the next 2 combinations in the ongoing triangle quilt blocks.  I made 3 of each of these and also finished the other 2 like the one I showed yesterday.

This is one of each of all the combinations so far.  There are 3 blocks of each so I'm up to 42 blocks and they will finish at 8".  I think I'm about half way done.  I'm trying to decide whether to add orange and gold.  I guess I can always make a block and see.

I got a catalog in the mail that has quilts quilted with wavy lines. That has been one of my favorite ways to quilt for several years.  A lot of people call them organic quilting lines, I just call them wavy or crookedy.



Here is another quilt from the same catalog.  I guess the designers for the manufacturers are watching the trends of real live quilters.

The blocks are beautiful especially in the batiks! I have been noticing the same trend with manufacturers as well. I guess quilters do make an impression.

Your blocks are so beautiful; I have enjoyed watching you post more and more. I can't wait to see the finished product. What is the block called? I know I have seen it before but can't put a name to it.

I think the manufactures watch us also. I like all the colors that you are using as usual.

Nice work on the blocks !

And what fun it must be to peruse those quilts.......I need to get on some more catalog mailing lists !

It's one big circle.....someone inspires the retailers, and the retailers inspire the customers, and things get tweeked and mixed up just a bit, and the cycle starts all over again. What a wonderful plan GOD made !

I'm not sure about the orange and gold. i think I like the cooler tones of what you have.
