After a lot of consideration ... I finally settled on a pattern.
I had seen a fabulous quilt last summer that I fell in love with ... it was the inspiration for this quilt. So I cut some squares, made some triangles, started doing some arranging ... and found there are a ton of different ways to make blocks with triangles!
I like this one ... it looks a little bit like a square envelope with the top open.
The original squares were 4.75", the blocks will be ~8" once completed. So now I've got to figure out how large I actually want to make the quilt ... 24 blocks complete ... I think the magic number will be 56 blocks.
As I mentioned last week, I've been taking a little me time. Well ... it's actually been "training time". My husband started running about 3 years ago, and he will be running his 3rd half-marathon in Victoria BC in October. I haven't told him yet, but I'm training to run the 8K that will run the same day!
To put this in perspective, when I started running 2 months ago, I couldn't run 1/2 mile without stopping. This weekend, I completed my first 3 mile run with out stopping! I'm slow ... but I'm running!
So the quilting is going a little slower than I had hoped ... after a working all day and running after work ... my feet are a little tired ...
Have a great Independence Day!
All the best
