At least I think this is still called a block? This month in the Modern Irish Bee, the wonderful Fiona of Patchwork Delights sent to us an equilateral triangle template and a pile of her beautiful scraps. Using this tutorial, we were to paper piece as many little scrappy triangles as we could!
I can not tell you how much I loved making these triangles! In the end I did make 8 little triangles to send off to Fi. She's going to need a whole lot more if she's going to make a quilt. With the whole bee chipping in she's well on her way. Can't wait to see the finished top, Fiona!
You guys were hilarious yesterday. I'm so grateful for your help and suggestions. Because I'm a science nerd, I graphed out your preferences and suggestions in a totally non-scientific way:
|From left to right: pin/red, grass, butterscotch, aqua/teal/jade, essex and bone|
What cracks me up is that the jade/aqua/teal suggestion was nearly the overall winner (down by 1 vote) and was not even one of the choices! For the three choices presented (Grass, Butterscotch and Bone) butterscotch was a clear forerunner, but with you all screaming for blues/greens I did have another look at these FQs next to every Kona blue that is available in the shop. Right now I'm playing with the idea of Kona Turquoise, Lagoon or Caribbean. I'm digging the Turquoise with possibly Butterscotch on the back. We'll see!
