These are the Colors used in the original.....turkey red and orange......can't call it "cheddar"! Whoops....I see this block is not really finished......8 triangles have been appliqued on the points of N-S-E-W!
This was a funny little design.....purely someone's original fantasy!
This should have been easy but I made units that turned out to be slightly too small......made new ones and then picked up the wrong ones when I put it together the second time.....third time was right!!
Love this little 4.5" sawtooth star which is the center of a block surrounded with half-square triangles.
When I was at my friend, Judy's, home in Belfast last week for our monthly antique quilt study, she laid the blocks I had in various stages of completion on her rug so I took the opportunity to take a photo. You can see the bright red/orange star that now has the red triangles in place. These are actually enjoyable to draft and make .....just don't like feeling pressured.....no one's fault but my own.....should have been piecing more last winter!!
First row is sewn together! Takes me 20-3- minutes to whipstitch one seam........need to get sewing faster!!!
Had not planned to use yellow for the alternating triangles, but when I ran across this old Smithsonian fabric "The Rising Sun" in the shop attic, I think I may try it......long way off tho!
Now a mish-mash of photos I took just because............
The cows are very happy to be out in the pastures eating green grass and laying around all day!
Sally, our Maine coon who was dropped off here in the fall of 2001, spends her days laying in the sun, tho she is still a good hunter......but I've thoroughly discouraged her from stalking my birdies!! Plenty of rodents around here to keep her happy!
My Mother's and now mine, favorite flower............lilacs that fade too soon!! Enjoy them while I can!
