Triangles...........

That is a 72" x 90" quilt in that pile.  I finished sewing the 192 triangle blocks last night.  I will start pressing them today and then the fun begins at the design wall.  I showed a few trial layouts back in May on this post.  A few people expressed opinions at that time.  My favorite is the zig zag layout but I will try a few things before I decide.

I mowed two thirds of my yard when I got home from the baby shower Sunday and the other one third late yesterday afternoon.  It is going to be hotter the next couple days so I had to get it done.  Brush pickup was yesterday morning so the branches are off my driveway and I won't have to mow for at least 6 days.  Quality sewing time ahead.

It is amazing to think a quilt will be made from that pile of pieces! I can't wait to see your layout!

I thought layout #2 was appealing: the zigzag layout is "jarring" and the third one is just bland (which won't do for your work AT ALL!)

I apologize for not remembering if you mentioned this before but what ruler do you use for triangles? Can't wait to see this one.

We've been away for a few days so am catching up here. I love the background that you are using on the butterflies. It makes the fabrics pop.

Glad to hear that the tire was replaced for free. It's a good thing that it went flat slowly rather than a blow out.

Enjoy the sewing time. I'm sure you will come up with the perfect setting for the blocks.

I have the same question as Lisa it looks like the corners are trimmed off?

Looking back at the post again I do prefer the zig-zag layout.
