I got up this morning excited because today is the day Paula of the Sassy Quilter published the triangle cutting instructions for the Triangle quilt along. Also, I planned to make some baby quilts.
After I cut out the triangles, I couldn't resist, and I started sewing them together.
|I sewed two together and another two together until I had a long string of them!|
|I started with these 32 triangles, not knowing how many I'd need.|
|I cut some more triangles, including white, black, and red stars for more variety, until I had 54 triangles, which is a good size for a baby quilt.|
I recently saw some straight pins with numbers on them for keeping track of your rows. I don't have them, so I put 1 pin in row 1, 2 pins in row two, all the way up to 6 pins in row 6.
|Here's my finished baby quilt top. I didn't trim any of the triangles (since I didn't know how to) and amazingly, the points are not perfect, but pretty good!|
I'll still be participating in the Triangle Quilt Along and am glad I have a whole week to cut out my triangles. I'll look forward to the "real" sewing instructions!
Also there's a linky party at My Go Go Life and I linked up there. So Fresh Quilts linked up the cutest fox/raccoon triangle quilt I've ever seen! Drop by for the fun!
