I really like this block. But more so, these great combining fabrics I was so glad to have in my stash!
The striped one I got at Fat Quarter Shop on clearance at the end of “a year.” The fabulous flower print I got on my first trip to Hobby Lobby. No one told me Hobby Lobby had fabric! But no worries, I was well prepared to spend : ) It was a great church activity and field trip for the ladies, but the driver of the van probably wasn’t so thrilled driving 2 hours (to and from) with chattering ladies behind him; but he was a trooper, thanks Pastor!
This block is project three on the Simply Retro Book by Camille Roskelley and it’s part of the Quilt Along Jana is hosting.
I’m a little behind on this one, but here it is. I wonder if you can guess why I have four attempts?
I do love the fabric but there was something else going on, that I finally realized had no solution at this point.
Can you see what I see?
Look closer now..
All I am going to say is “TRIANGLES.”
And I’d like to add that I spent way too much time here trying to fix the problem.
Alright, I’ll tell you. It said to make triangles from 5″ squares and then trim to 4 1/2. Well, be careful how you trim!!
If your points don’t meet in the exact corner, after your trimming and/or at sewing time. There is NO WAY EVER that you will have a 1/4″ after the point of your triangle.
So there, quilt and learn.
