The Fab Little Quilt Swap

I am finally starting on my Fab Little Quilt Swap project.  (Not bad considering I have about a week and a half left until it needs to be mailed :)  My partner loves a rainbow of colors, so I whipped up these little strings.  I tell you I just love surfing through my scrap bins now!!!


Then I used my little paper template of an equilateral triangle to cut those strings into these cute scrappy triangles.  See how they all go from dark to light,  I love the look that creates!!!


And then since my partner also loves stars, I laid those cute little triangles out into this beautiful block.  I used this tutorial from Katie which I have loved for so long and am so glad to be finally doing it!!   This little mini is so much fun so far and I am just loving the way it is coming along!!


Now I just need to sew up the rows and add the corners.  Then it's will be ready for some quilting.  I am thinking of doing something a la my Double Dresden style with some alternating colors.  It if comes out the way I have it in my head it will be awesome!!!  I am off to go sew :)
