I don’t know about you but I have been dreaming about triangles, lots of triangles of many colors. This is fitting because I am now on my triangle quilt part two – creating the rows. And boy do I have rows and rows of them.
When I sew the triangles together I start with one color. I sew a white triangle on either side of it. If I am sewing the first row, I sew it all the way down. If this is the second row, I do not sew into the already sewn seam.
When I have a white triangle – colored triangle – white triangle I then add a second colored triangle.
I make sure to not sew a seam down. I want the ends to be free so I can nest them if I need to.
I am making each row with eight of the colors. I made sure that each color was skipped in one row. Then I started the next row with that color triangle. I did not follow any other pattern.
As I finished each row, I carefully pressed the seams. Each seam was pressed towards the right on the ironing board. That equated to left when it was turned the right side up.
I probably could have fit one more row on the bottom of the design wall but really, who needs to bend down that low? I started putting them on the Longarm.
Yes, I have triangle rows all over the place! I guess I should do something about them, what do you think?
I may take a day off to gear up for sewing all these rows together. I have various options for how I could do that. Sooner or later, I have to decide.
I have to put an end to these triangle dreams!
