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 :)
