I was happy to get this triangle quilt top completed. I had several Halloween projects, including Zara's costume and Henry's. I had been doing so much garment sewing I had to remind myself to make quarter inch seams.
I had eleven rows to join together and I wanted each triangle centered to the one above it. I went back to my Marti Michell template which had the middle marked. I lined up the rows this way.
When I ironed the row seams open, I would find mistakes. Back to the machine. I was somewhat annoyed to find mistakes because I had to fix them.
Finally all 11 were joined together and I could even up the sides. Once again I turned to my template. I used it to make sure I was leaving a quarter inch.
I had the quilt top folded in half at this point. It made me happy that I could easily cut two layers at once. It cut the time in half.
I am very happy with the finished top, it looks just like I am imagine it would. I like the 10 solids and I do have the top finished in time for my guild's DIME challenge - interpret 10 as you want.
I am trying to figure out if I can get the back finished and this on the Gammill, my Gladys. Then I would have to also quilt it all by Thursday for guild. I will see how it goes this weekend.
I also have to figure out how to quilt it. I have been sketching and haven't chosen a design yet. I need to choose a color for the quilting thread as well.
Aren't these terrific problems to have?
