That is an amazing piece of work, GramE! I'd go nuts with anything so difficult.

GramE- I bow to a master quilter! I would probably faint before I would even attempt something that complex.

Libster, I didn’t know it was 350+ triangles until I bought the pattern. I have made the Labyrinth quilt and it was actually pretty quick at putting together. So another grandson going to be a senior and when I saw this, I said, yep, that’s it. Then I found the name and the pattern and it was in my mailbox. The backside will be a Purdue Pete panel and a few more triangles. They are all over because it took about 8 layouts to get the shading right.

I’m chomping at the bit for some romantic, feminist florals. I love the colors I’ve chosen. But life keeps happening and getting in my way!

Janice, I Love your wall hanging. Sounds like a good idea. I seem to start Bonnie’s mysteries but I quickly lose interest when we get to the flying geese.

GramE, I love watching BH’s mysteries unfold. I almost jumped in on the current one at the beginning but decided to work on existing unfinished projects. Those hourglass blocks would have been the end of me but I love how they turned out. The wall hanging is now about half way done. Will post when complete.

Am off to deliver my pup to the vet for surgery. Roads are relatively safe to drive now, thank goodness.

To be honest, it is very structured. The issue is selecting fabrics that highlight the shadowing properly. I rehearsed about 5 for the third color. Hubby and I can’t believe how it looks now as opposed to the first layout. Wrong colors wash out even those little black triangles, which are the key to success. As witnessed by the one wrong one I have to reorient. Lots can go wrong from the wall to the machine. Focusing on the direction as you take them down is crucial. First three rows were a very steep learning curve. This will be one of those I can believe I did when it’s done. Like the Labyrinth.

Thank you, Sewbiz.

Packages of F8s are rolling in with more on the way. Woo hoo! I haven’t opened any yet but will do so this weekend and get a start on the sorting.
