    My two newest quilts, new ideas on how to use half square triangles

    Hi All,

    One of my other groups started a Bucket List. Two of the quilts on the list were a Bargello and Delectable Mountains. I started cutting up half square triangles to do a Delectable Mountains and came up with two different quilts.

    They are both made using cut up half square triangles.

    My Delectable Stars just won a third place ribbon at my guild quilt show.
    This is the first quilt I have entered in a show and I was pretty happy.
    I may never enter a quilt with a black background in a show again as it took forever to get most of the lint off of it.

    The other I am calling Delectable Bargello. I was originally going to call this one "Remembering Paducah" since I made it with fabric I bought at Hancocks of Paducah when DH and I went to Paducah a couple of years ago.

    Let me know what you think.
    I could use a little cheering up. My darling dog Casey died this past Wednesday. He was 13 and had declining health so it was expected. He was such a sweetheart.

    So sorry to hear about Casey. It's so hard when we lose our beloved companion.

    Love both the quilts. I love bright colors on black. The bargello is outstanding. I've never seen it arranged that way before--absolutely great.
