This is what I made last week. It was a gift for my husband so I kept it a secret. But I did sneak it on the 2012 Unfinished Projects list as # 12 Flannel. Does anyone else give unfinished quilt tops as gifts? With a promise to complete, of course. He likes it... but I had to explain that it will be bigger after a few more borders are added. It is a pattern by Kari Nichols called Triangle Trips. I think I bought the flannel two years ago when I bought the pattern, so I am happy that I got this started!!
|I was able to complete a few Ohio Star blocks from Step 6 of the Orca Bay Mystery. We are using the hourglass blocks made in Step One. I am finding that I wasn't as accurate as I thought I was. I did measure the triangles and hourglass pieces when I started Step One but once I started using them in this step I found some were a little too big. So I had to trim them. I guess I was having so much fun that I got carried away in the cutting or sewing or both. Oh, and when I was cutting the blue 2 1/2 inch squares for this step, I cut more than needed. I guess after cutting 700 last week, 56 seemed to go so fast!|
And, I am still completing Step 5 by using them as leaders / enders.
As always, I am linking with Quiltville's Monday Mystery Link and Patchwork Times Design Wall Monday (even though the Triangles Trips quilt isn't on the design wall anymore). I have enjoyed visiting all the blogs during these link ups and I hope you have enjoyed visiting mine too!
These pictures today are brought to you by my daughter Emily and her new i phone!
Happy New Year,
