Sneak Peek

This is what I'm doing for my July mini-quilt-swap......I think! The squares are 2½", and 2" finished.
I saw this quilt, and wanted to see, if I could do something like that. Knowing me and my limited patience, I figured a miniquilt would be the way to go.
And then the July-theme in the mini-quilt-group is triangles!!!
So...it is almost as if I have to sew this.

Making perfect points, now that's a different matter. Hopefully I'll get better with practise?!

Zig Zags look really effective!

This looks amazing to me and very hard to do. I would run out of patience to do a big quilt.

Jacquie said...

You are definitely doing it! Looks great.

I love that pattern! That is going to be so cute when you finish it.

Hi Tine, the technique I've just learned with the Autumn Quilt was to mark a centre line on a piece 1 7/8" square. Then put the 2 fabrics RST and sew 1/4" either side of the line and then cut on the centre line. This then gave a square of 2 triangles of 2 different fabrics about 1 1/2" square. Does that help?

I love the Laurel burch fabric you're using.

Best wishes,
Melanie

I think the zig zag pattern will be cute as a little quilt. Especially with the colors you are using. Don't worry about the points - I think we may be our own worst critics!

Very nice! This will look lovely! Perfect points?? I struggle with those too. :)
