I really have to start brainstorming a “real” name for this quilt. “The MIL Quilt” just won’t do at all. It is coming together rather quickly, though. The triangle blocks are large enough that, once they’ve been assembled, the rest goes lickety-split.
I had to pay close attention as I sewed, otherwise I had a tendency to stitch bits onto the wrong edge.
While none of the points came out badly, they certainly improved as I went along. I achieved a “top speed” of four blocks per 30 minutes. Even with chain piecing, I was back & forth between the ironing board and sewing machine A LOT.
I really love the secodary pattern created by the inner triangles. I’d like to try this pattern again using different colors to enhance that aspect of the design.
Like I said–this one grows quickly! All of the blocks are complete.
I am finding that the reds are difficult to photograph. Do you have any tips for me? I’m hoping my problems will be solved once I can get it outside in the natural light, but the sky has poured rain each day I’ve worked on it thus far, so a “design floor” near the window is as good as it gets for now.
