Today was to be a Sew Day but by the time I finished "chores" (boring work that needs to be done!), it was after Noon! Then, I could not settle down to just one thing, flitted back and forth from project to project.....and, cutting out some new blocks for a little quilt using Edyta Sitar's "Dancing in the Rain"....you guessed it.....more triangles....which will become Pinwheels.
Finally, made a decision after spending way too much time trying to choose sashing/border for this little Flying Geese from Jo Morton Club 11.....Geese are 5/8" x 1-1/8. I stayed with my usual "safe" colors instead of using the new, brighter colors from Jo's New Leesburg line.
Closeup of the lower triangle block. I just let the colors fall where they may! No planning here! Well, except for counting to have a nearly equal mix!
Not sure if I have showed this quilt before and too lazy to go looking to see if I have..........really need to make myself an Index.......someday! This quilt was an exercise to show customers how far a 6" Charm package could go. Cut each charm into four 3" squares, match up with tea-dye muslin squares and Make Triangles! Judie Rothermel's brown/blue (contained 20 fabrics if I recall correctly) Charleston 3 is the fabric line used.....the 4 other Charleston lines were brown/pink. This quilt is 28" x 40".
This photo shows a few antique Tumbler blocks, sewn together in one long row....there are 153 of them dating from the late Nineteenth Century. This must have been a common way to sew them "back in the day" and then just "unsew" where needed when it was time to make rows of a quilt. Last week at Quilt Study, a friend showed a box of "stuff" she recently acquired that contained Triangles sewn together in the same manner......except that there were Lots More single Triangles cut and ready to go............oh why didn't I think to take a photo of hers?
