HSTeria quilt along Friday............

My new triangle project is still in the design stage.  The 9 blocks in the center are pieced, the borders are partially pieced in rows.  Since I haven't finalized the triangle border, I can't sew the cross seams in the borders until I add them on.  I have been working on this at our Thursday sew ins.  Since they are just 10" blocks this will probably be a wallhanging.

The block patterns came from 2 different sources.  The 5 blocks pattern is from this blog.  After I saw the block I drew it on graph paper.  Then I found the 4 blocks pattern in the first Material Obsession book and since they were both a grid of 5 squares, they work very well together. 

Click on the HSTeria quilt along button on my right side bar to see what everyone else is doing with their triangles.

I knew it would look great no matter what you chose to do. Colors pop off of the neutral background. Chris

I am so behind on blog reading! This is looking great. I love the last quilt... has bit of shimmer to it and this one looks like tops spinning!

I like both blocks. Great combo.

Wanda, the polar vortex block in the second row, first block looks like a tulip block to me. I am thinking that blocks made with different tulip colors and greens for the leaves and centers would be really neat. I just love tulips and this block looks like a bunch of tulips. Thanks for the link; I was able to find the tutorial for her block on her blog. Thanks for sharing!

Congratulations on your win! Really like the alternating blocks.

Oh, look how pretty! Another blue block! :) I like the borders, you know how visual I am so seeing them is SO much better than trying to visualize. Looks great (as always)...shouts HAPPY SPRING! What's next, projectwise? >>>>>>>>>>

I love the combination of these two blocks. It is so much more interesting than each standing alone.

This is just so bright and cheery. Best yet, nothing beats a "freebie" quilt. I love getting 2 for one deals! LOL!!

Cathy said...

Yummy! I have that first Material Obsession book...I'll have to go browse it again.

It is turning out so beautiful! Love the fabrics!

This is great. I particularly like the 5 block pattern. Looks like a fancy pin-wheel block and is very happy, somehow. Triangles really do give a lot of movement, which is one reason I regret not using them more. I just prefer to stick to what's easier to cut and sew: squares and strips. But I really should remind myself to add at least some triangles, for the movement and change of pace! You inspire me.

I, too, love the combination of blocks in this design. I didn't care much for the MO block when I saw it popping up in swap blocks, but I think it looks great in combination with the other block. Widening my perspective, again! Thanks for teaching.
