Friday Finish: Finally, pictures!

Even a quick weekend trip can totally throw off your sew-jo. I've been trying to get back in the swing of things and get to work on stuff, but boy howdy is it hard.

This finish has been finished for a bit now (for my 3Q FAL plans), but I haven't had a chance to take any pictures of it. Until today. I wanted to go to my favorite bridge, but it's windy and I'm not too keen on it falling in the muck. Guess the backyard will have to do.

I seriously love this quilt. I love the colors in this fabric line (Apple of My Eye from Riley Blake). I love the binding - the red/pink herringbone print. Love the back too - the red/pink daisies on aqua.

I know I've gotten a little crazy with the triangle quilts, but it's fun and different for me. I've got one more in the works, made from Lucy's Crab Shack. If I cut a few more triangles, I can make one big enough for my bed. Although I don't need it, but since when has "need" come in to the picture? If our power ever goes out in the wintertime, we're going to be just fine!

The best thing about these giant triangles is how easy they are to put together. The hardest part, really, is laying out all those triangles and keeping baby girl off of them. She likes to rearrange them for me. Silly girly.

I got some fun mail yesterday too - my Accuquilt circle cutters, so I can finish up my PKM Dresdens. Anyone have a great suggestion for a hand-applique book/video/tutorial? I'm in desperate need!

I'm linking up with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, who gets to piece while at the beach - lucky! Also linking up with amylouwho for Sew & Tell Friday - you must go check out the cute jammies she made for her littlelouwhos - adorable!

  9. Because of you, a triangle quilt is on my list. I am thinking of using my stash of Flea Market Fancy for it. =)
