I received some comments about the Triangulations paper so here's the scoop. It's a cd you can buy from Bear Paw Productions. I think the cost was around $28.00. I have used the pages enough times to have paid for the program a couple of times already. I have done quite a few swaps and blocks that are all the same size and fabric so I can print the size sheet I need to make multiple units. It's very easy and I have it at home and don't have to worry if I run out. It wouldn't work as good for scrappy sewing of hst's and qst's unless you cut the papers up into smaller sections.
I loaded the program in my documents under my "Patterns" folder. I think both programs, Half Square Triangles and Quarter Square Triangles, are less than 2MB's. Okay, that's my infomercial for today. :o)
And if I didn't have enough to do, my husband's secretary asked me if I would make a quilt for a family friend of hers. I made her a quilt a few years ago when she had her first grandbaby. Well, if you've read my blog for very long, you might notice I have "finishing issues". LOL So last night, with nothing else to do (yes, my nose is growning), I dug into my stash for little boy fabric. Cheryl, the prospective client, said the daddy loves baseball. I came up with these blocks.
The fabric is extra since I made my husband a quilt (top) at a retreat several years ago. I used different fabric and the pattern was a mystery project. Here's a link to a picture of the ahem, unfinished quilt I made. Anyway, I'm thinking if it's for a baby, this isn't quite juvenile prints but I think I could get away with 6 or 9 blocks, simple sashing and maybe grid quilting. Now all I need is a week off of work!!
And the Queen of Unfinished wants to share what on her design wall!!! Anyone have the number to a therapist?
