I am not sure where this week went, I started this posting earlier in the week and then promptly didn't get back to it until now. I finished a couple small pieces last week and wanted to share them with you all.
The first piece is a small Halloween piece, that is totally out of leftovers from another quilt. Right before Halloween while looking for something else, I opened up a small drawer and wha-la, there they were.
|A very simple layout and I quilted it diagonally with a purple sliver thread. I would have liked to add more sliver to it, but had trouble with breakage going through the seams, even with all the tricks I know with stitching with that kind of thread.|
These half square triangles came from cutting off the excess triangles when you add a smaller square to a larger square and stitch from corner to corner as shown. Then you trim away on the dashed line and press the triangle away from the square. Probably my fav method to add triangles to a square. The only problem with this method ......you end up with all of these triangles....if they are very small they go in the pet bedding bag to be recycled there. But if they are bigger than that I have a hard time tossing them. :0
Here is the latest challenge quilt on the small quilt list by Kathleen Tracy. I must say it didn't look like much until I added the borders.
