I am currently sewing half square triangles.
There is a happy BUZZ in the sewing room
as the quilt grows and grows!!!
This quilt contains SO many ugly fabrics.
Look close and you'll spy them.
It is SO FUN to see them MINGLE
in this quilt
and become something
Each half square triangle block is 3 1/2".
I am using a NEW to ME tool
called - EASY ANGLE.
It seems to save time and FABRIC!
What are YOU making this week??
Where have you been, girl? Easy Angle (and all it's counterparts by Omnigrid and Creative Grids) are the way to go. When fabric is going for $13/yd in quilt shops, why throw any of it out, even sliver trims.ReplyDelete
I am so not a tool girl!! But....This one is a keeper😉Delete
This is beautiful! What a lovely way to use ugly fabric.ReplyDelete
Great. I'm waiting for my kids to go to college so I can have a sewing room.ReplyDelete
I don't see any ugly fabric. All I see is the makings of a FABULOUS quilt!!ReplyDelete
I've always heard that if you think you have ugly fabric you haven't cut it small enough. Looking at your quilt, it's looking quite nice so I guess you cut it just the right size. Thanks for the party.ReplyDelete
You are making definite progress on your quilt. But, oh, 3.5" is a really small size if you are making a big quilt! Keep going.ReplyDelete
ohhhhh this makes me feel like getting all my ugly fabrics out :PReplyDelete
cut it small enough and you do not notice the ugly anymoreReplyDelete
Looking good! Those dark fabrics create the contrast that draws the eye, so no ugly fabrics stand out. Very pleasing layout.ReplyDelete
if you put enough ugly fabric together it magically becomes beautiful and your quilt if proof of thatReplyDelete
You'd never know there was ugly fabrics in those blocks. It's going to be a fun quilt.ReplyDelete
Looking good! With so much variety, no one fabric - ugly or not - stands out. The whole is definitely greater than the sum of its parts.ReplyDelete
I LOVE my easy angle - you'll be surprised how many things you can find a way to use it!ReplyDelete
It is beautiful. You'd never know it has uglies in it.ReplyDelete
Isn't it fun how our uglies get lost in such a playful pattern. I have an "ugly" that you've inspired me to use! Thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
