Triangles agian......times 2

I sewed several sections together but haven't attached them to the center yet.  The two outside rows aren't sewn together yet.  I didn't finish designing because it is up too high on the wall.  I mowed my grass for the first time yesterday and my arms were aching from 35 minutes of holding onto the mower while walking.  I didn't turn on the iron and press the rows that are sewn yet.
Here is the plan for triangle quilt #2.  I color coded each of the sizes of triangles this time to make it easier to count them.  This one would finish at 50" x 70" if I follow my drawing.  I may experiment with more rows after I get the center part assembled.  Triangles #1 will finish at 54" x 66" as it is shown in the drawing.




I laid out the first section of 96 two inch finished triangle squares on my sewing cabinet.  I hope to get both of the sections sewn today.

Terrific triangles!! It looks so vibrant. Love the sketch. Rest up. Still too cold her for much to grow. Supposed to warm up starting tomorrow.

The quilt is coming along nicely! I like the design of #2 too. I haven't mowed my grass yet, but it is going to need it after all that rain we got Monday.

Love the plan for the second design -- and I'm with you on color coding making things easier. These quilt projects are fabulous!

Wowzer! You're making great progress.

I really love the design for the second quilt. One of the things I especially love is the use of the smaller sizes going out to the outer edges, That really gives an artistic touch

I love the look of those small hst's in the middle really draws your eye -- I spent several hours planting pots and garden and can barely move today - all that up and down action - know how you are feeling
