Totally Triangle Quilt Along

As the new year starts, I have one full year of quilting experience.  I am looking to have some fun and work on things that I normally wouldn’t do  So I started looking for QAL and BOM.

On instagram I saw Mystery Quilter.  She was sharing her 2017 Totally Triangle Quiltalong.  It runs from January 7 to June 24.  With a new block every 2 weeks.

All the blocks are triangle patchwork.  They look fun and not too difficult.  And YEA!!!! there is no paper piecing.  I don’t think I am ready for paper piecing yet.

Sheila’s Totally Triangle Quilt has been accepted into Quiltcon in Savanah in February.

Anyone who knows me or looks at my blog, knows that I am not that creative.  Fabric selection comes from precuts and collections.

But yesterday I headed to the local quilt shop and gave it a try for the Totally Triangle Quiltalong.

I am using Kona Slate and Kona White.  The colors are all from Andover Fabrics – Dimples.  Technically I chose my own fabric, since it didn’t come in a pre-cut bundle with a nice ribbon on it.  So I didn’t really go that far out of the collection box, I do think it will be nice.

So I am off to go start the first block.  Triangle Nine Patch.

Best laid plans.  Weren’t we all taught to read the instructions first.  Well I don’t have a 60 degree triangle ruler, I have a 30-degree.  So placed an order and will get to iron my fabric today.

Over on instagram Sheila was looking for 5 champions to quilt along with her.  I was so excited that I got to join this journey. So you will be seeing a lot of me and my blocks for the next 25 weeks.

So here is to 25 weeks of triangle fun and sharing with Sheila @mysteryquilter
