    I got brave and tried to do something with triangles rather than squares and rectangles. It appears that I need to get more precise with my measuring and accurate scant 1/4 seams and with pressing the right way. The light colored one was first and is the most "off", so I am forced to keep it for me. Second one is a gift for my daughter. Forgive that I got overly anxious to post and have not bound them yet.

    They are both very pretty but that second one really caught my eye.

    They are both beautiful. :)

    I have not ventured into the world of triangles yet, but I just got some gorgeous symmetrical repeating patterns and a book that teaches how to cut the pattern into triangles to make snowflakes and a template too...sooo, I'll be going there sooner or later. lol

    Beautiful fabric and a good job, and I'm sure that the more you practice the better you'll be at triangles.

    Do you mind telling us the name of the book? I think I'd like to get one of them... I like the effect of triangles now that I have gotten started on them. Thanks.
