First up - Triangles! So there is a reason why I usually don't sign up for Quilt Alongs. Because I can never keep up! I am already a week, and very soon to be two weeks behind with the Triangle QAL being hosted by The Sassy Quilter. But that does not mean that I am giving up! This week I took the fabric on a work road trip so that I could at least get it pressed and starched. This is my first time using starch. I suspect I did not use enough, but time will tell...
Then last night I got the triangles cut. You can use an equilateral triangle or the 60 degree lines on your regular 6 x 24 ruler to cut your triangles. Not wanting to invest in another ruler, I chose my regular ruler and it worked like a charm!

Next step is to lay them out in rows and sew the rows together. I suspect that will be another week away for me. But in the mean time I like looking at this stack. Makes me happy.
Next up - my April goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes.
A few months ago I needed a quick fix and put together two Giant Star Quilt tops based on Jeni Baker's tutorial.
Time to get those babies quilted! Well one of them anyway. My first dilemma was how to quilt it. Wanting to be kind to myself I decided to take the top apart into four quarters so that I could do some QAYG.
To sum up - I am terrible at QAL deadlines, my kitty is a photo bomber, triangles stacked in a pile are just as good as those stretched out on a design wall, I want to QAYG everything and I am kicking ass at straight line quilting right now!
Off I go to link up with The Triangle QAL and A Lovely Year of Finishes.
I hope you have a great sewing week!
