Another candidate for triangles.....
I found this neat triangle pattern in this 1970 book. I think it might have the same effect as the Northwind block. There are positive and negative blocks which should make it interesting to assemble. It is finished 4" components: square, half square and quarter square.
This was my view every time I walked down the basement stairs yesterday. Gemstones, reflections, shimmering......all candidates that might be in the name of this quilt.
I mowed my grass in 2 sessions yesterday. I have a battery operated mower and it isn't holding a full charge any more. I can get the front and side yards almost done when it dies and then I recharge it and mow the back. I noticed the Jack-in-the-Pulpits were really big so I grabbed my camera and went back out.
I have the dark striped ones and the plain green ones, courtesy of my neighbor and probably the birds. They pop up right through the leaves so I don't even rake in the area where they grow.
Here is the garden outside my dining room window on May 3 and.....
here it is on May 19. It fills in fast and I can barely find the stepping stones but I know they are there if I need to get in there later.
