I feel like you’ve heard this one before…
My Triangle Quilt Along Quilt is STILL a work in progress. The good news (for me) is that I FINALLY decided how long my rows would be, and all 18 of my rows are FINISHED!
Paula’s original instructions called for 12 rows with 17 triangles per row. But I don’t always follow instructions, and this ‘little’ quilt of mine has grown into quite a beast. It’s 18 rows long and 31 triangles wide. It’s a big bad mamma jamma!
I could have easily gone wider, but I’m going to use a 108″ backing for it, so I decided to stop at 31 wide. That, and the fact that I was quickly running out of available space on the long arm rollers! And I had to stop sometime, right? The crazy thing is that I have enough triangles that I could easily add another couple of rows, but I’m just saying NO.
I got as far as pressing rows 0 and 1 and sewing them together tonight. Here are some points that I’m rather proud of
There are other points I’m NOT proud of, but hey, none of my quilts are perfect. And this was my first set of rows – I’ll get the hang of it, and they’ll look better as I go along (I hope).
I decided that was enough for tonight, but I have everything ready to go for tomorrow – all of my pairs of rows are stacked and ready to be pressed and pinned this week. With any luck I’ll be done with it Saturday or Sunday.
Hopefully next week I can post about a DIFFERENT WIP. 🙂
