Triangulate!

I have had quite the week, working to meet some important deadlines and trying to catch up on some pattern writing!  And the kick off of the Road Home Row Along!  Hopefully most of the computer work is behind me at this point and I have time to catch up on some blogging about all of this activity.

Here are our four rows for today, September 8 of the Road Home:

creates Colorado
creates Bulgaria
creates Las Vegas, Nevada
creates Amanzimtoti, South Africa

You are going to love these rows!  I definitely will have to make the one for Colorado, that's were I was born and raised, and the block really reminds me of my childhood home.  I'll add the entire schedule to the bottom of my post so you can catch up on the ones from earlier and keep your eye out for the rest.



This is Triangulate!  I've had this quilt in the back of my mind for over a year now.  I made a lovely quilt for Threads That Bind last year that used large green and black squares that were added to a larger light square on two corners and "snowballed", or as I call it sew and flip triangles.  When I trimmed the excess I was left with a large stack of good sized triangles.  I stashed them all in a baggie with the rest of the excess fabric from the quilt and saved it for a future project.  After a year we still have a good supply of kits, so I decided to get this "bonus" quilt made up, write a pattern, and add it to the kits to make it a two for the price of one deal and hopefully sell them!

After making the quilt top, I still had some good sized pieces left, so I made a scrappy back for this quilt.  Now that the pattern is done, I've added it to my Craftsy Shop - Triangulations is a very simple pattern - all you have to do is sew a bunch of triangles together!  I figured out yardage for a bunch of different size triangles, plus threw in a couple of bonus layouts to make it more fun.  I have more baggies full of triangles from other projects, so will probably have to make a few more of these just for the fun of it.

Here is the entire schedule for the Road Home - have fun exploring!
