Triangle play time..........

I just needed to do some mindless fun sewing last night.  I have 2 boxes full of triangles this size and lots of them were already sewn into squares.
On the second piece I added in squares that had one solid color triangle.  It gives a diagonal row effect.
I baked frosted creams to take to the reunion today.  If you aren't familiar with them, they are kind of like gingerbread.  Dad is going to the reunion.  He will be the oldest person there at 98.
This is the last little bouquet of the season.  The frost should kill back most of the pot plants.  I didn't realize how well petunias would last in a bouquet.  Next year I will pick them more often.

Love this triangle quilt! Triangles are so dynamic, they seem to be in motion all the time. And the flowers are beautiful! Ours are completely gone in the rain.

As always your quilts and colour just 'blow me away' Loved the look of the cakes too! It's good to catch up with you again. Enjoy your reunion. Joan

I'm missing my little bouquets too. The flowers are almost done here. I still have nasturtiums.
I've never heard of those squares. They sound good.
Have a great reunion!

The triangles are so great!!

I don't think that I have ever picked petunias for a bouquet. Interesting.

How did the appointment go?

I just love the first one Wanda - such great colour & print combos. And your frosted creams look pretty amazing too - I'd love it if you posted the recipe some time. Have fun at the reunion!

I never get tired of HST's...always so much fun and potential! Oooo! Frosted creams look quite delicious. I would LOVE it if you shared the recipe - gingerbread is so good this time of year!

In stitches,
Teresa :o)

Great Saturday post... Bright and happy triangle pieces. And OMG ~ Frosted Creams ~ look so good and perfect for an autumn day. And such a pretty lil bouquet.

I hope you were able to get an appointment to see a Retina specialist, like on Monday. As a rule your Opthamologist gets you scheduled through their office immediately.

Beautiful triangles! I hope you have a great time at your reunion; good health and blessings to your dad :o)

How beautiful!
Another great thing about petunias is you can just cut off a piece and stick in a pot and it will root, grow, and bloom from the new plant in a few weeks.
Yep the more you cut them the more flowers you get :0).
Oh well time to move onto the next season.....it won't be long before we have frost here in NY too.

Happy Sewing

Isn't it fun to have shapes cut out and ready to play! Yours are really looking pretty.

Recipe? They look delicious.

And I love to pick petunias. Their fragrance is so sweet. I was just repotting some plants I had in the house. They are tired, too. Maybe they can stay outside for a while now. We've got months of mild weather before a freeze usually.

I yanked my petunias yesterday. So sad having to say goodbye to them for another season. Enjoy your reunion; love your little triangles. Karmen

Oh, I need to do that with some triangles. I've had a pile of them sitting on the side of my machine since two quilts ago. And the other day I found another little stack. I love the look of them with miscellaneous lights and darks ! I always think I have to do something with the squares once they're pieced, so you've just given me 'permission' to piece the triangles and then put them away until more 'appear' !

Thanks.......loving the bouquet !
