Two more triangle blocks and an OOPS

Thanks to Janet O. for carefully looking over my blocks and pointing out my mistake in block 27.. All fixed!!

I did get two more done!  Blocks 35 and 36!  I'm now officially up to date!  Of course, I haven't started the Moda Blockheads, the Buttermilk Basin mystery, the Count your Blessings,  the summer mystery blog hop, Cheri Payne's Baskets of Plenty, or the Piecing the Past blocks.  Oh, there's also the Canadian Women quilt.  I've printed all these patterns and hope to get to them SOON.  So many choices this year, don't ya think??

I also got the border sewn on to the large kit I bought last year, using the French General's very bright red and grays.  Not bad, right??  Sadly, the picture doesn't capture the vividness of the reds!  It's quite a striking color.  Of course, the quilt turned out a bit larger than I had thought. but oh to the machine quilter it's going, once I make the backing!

Amazing how much sewing I can get done when I don't have any distractions!!

Now to find my file with everyone's names from the pin cushion swap... I know I put it somewhere... @#$@#$#$


  1. LOL--I tried to be so discreet sending you a separate email to point out the mistake I saw, rather than putting it in the comments. Then you announce it on your next blog post.
    I always drag my feet making backings.
    You have really been churning out the Triangle blocks. Maybe you will get done with yours so quickly that you will have time to make mine!! : )

  2. quilt looks splendid liking the assortment of blocks you have used along with the plain squares. Hoe good that you can get it quilted that is the part I dread as I so hate layering up a quilt, have a pile waiting to be done.

  3. French general fabrics are one of my favourite ! Your top is beautiful Randy !

  4. This will be such a lovely piece Randy and your Triangles I love!! hugs, Julierose

  5. Oh, that top is gorgeous! Let me know when you want to "downsize" that one! And that Janet is so cute! I just thought #27 was really unique!

  6. I love hearing your list of quilts and SAL's. It's easy to want to make it all. I speak from my experience!

  7. The red and grey looks Fabulous and I'm really loving those fabrics for the block- sew along!

  8. I have been saving all the Canadian Women patterns....saving for a rainy day I suppose. I would have to have a flood to catch up.
