Tri-Angler triangle quilt, Layer Cake progress, & Sew Kitschy

It's the end of the month and so I've been sewing like crazy to catch up with my sew alongs.
I just completed a special birthday gift for my fisherman (born on the 1906 San Francisco earthquake anniversary). 
Of course the moment I laid it out for a photograph, this little helper ran over and stretched out to claim it for herself (I guess she likes fishing too)!

It's made with kona cotton solids and some fabric with fish on it.  Finished size is 52 x 63".  I'm going to make a label and call it Tri-Angler!

This will be my entry in the final link up.  Stop by and see all the beautiful quilts there!
 (I will complete my bright spring colors triangle quilt later.)




I finished all of my layer cake sampler quilt blocks except numbers 19 and 20, which are due this week.  You can visit The Material Girl by clicking here.


Sew Kitschy Update

I've gotten a little better at paper piecing.  My teapot block for the Sew Kitschy turned out bigger and I didn't know why until I checked the pattern and realized that the blocks are supposed to be 10 1/2" (unfinished).  My others are 9 1/2" and so I'll have to add on some borders or maybe do them over.

Paper piecing is challenging, but rewarding when you get the pieces to line up and get a block completed!
You can visit Kristy at Quiet Play to learn more about Sew Kitschy here.

Thanks for visiting!

Love your Triangle Quilt! The ocean colors are pretty.

And your Sew Kitschy block is really cute!
I have a good idea of why you get the smaller sizes...

Kristy makes the patterns for A4 size paper . It works when we use our Legal paper, and use LANDSCAPE for the paper to print . Some of the pieces are too large for going across our letter size 8 1/2 inch letter paper.
It took me a few years to figure this out! You can see my blog, too, in patterns and tutorials.

They are looking good!
