So Far, So Good

I’m still on track with QAL #3 for 2014.  (But don’t ask me about QALs #1 & #2…)

All of the triangles are cut and I’ve started laying out.  This is about 1/2 of it (per Paula’s original instructions). I have a whole ‘nother set of FQs so I will likely make this at least twin size so someone can get more use out of it (a nephew, perhaps?). I have some time to decide yet.

The Pink One (appropriately dressed) was helping my lay it out tonight.

Little Helper

1/2 laid out

I would like to start sewing but I’m waiting for Paula’s instructions as she said she has some tips for sewing these bad boys together.  Because of work and family commitments this weekend I won’t be able to do any sewing…that part will have to wait until some time next week.

About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

    What a great quilt those lovely triangles will make. and what a great heritage for “the pink one” to remember helping lay out her mom’s quilt.

      She wants to help in many ways – this is the only way I’ll let her currently! I sometimes wonder if she’ll be a quilter as she gets older. I hope so!

  4. I really love these fabrics! I just made a triangle quilt earlier this year and was surprised at how fun and easy it was. What a great quilt along!

    • msminnesota says:

      Aren’t they fun? I am excited to see how it all comes together. I was hesitant about joining the quilt along (over-committed, you know), but I’m so glad I did!

  5. Oh, the Pink One will be a quilter! It may be when she is thirty plus, but she will! ; P

    Hi there! I’m not sure how I came across your blog, but am glad I did! Love your color choices here. Can you tell me the name of the fabric line? Or what quilt shop? I’m just north of the twin cities, you know, in case I’d need to go buy some. Lol. Thanks

  7. These colors are beautiful! I can’t wait to see this one finished 🙂

I want to hear from you...
