    Here it is! 1296 triangles grouped by color and only one triangle has a twin!

    I missed quite a few points on this quilt, not my best work but DANG! those triangles were tiny!

    It is square and on point, so I think it might look better on the bed if it were turned 90 degrees.

    I am going to attempt a pattern for the next one... same blocks just arranged differently in the quilt.

    Oh yes you can see Gus checking out the new quilt... nosy doggy!

    whew!!! thats alot of triangles!!! very nice Mamagus!!

    I remember when I made my Y2K quilt. I had 2,000 2 1/2" charms and no two the same..that was a challenge in itself making sure there were no twins!!! I had a couple stiff drinks making that one to keep my sanity!!

    awesome quilt Mamagus!

    Beautiful quilt! My hat is off to you with all those tiny triangles. That would drive me batty.

    I love it! That's just the sort of thing I'd want for myself. I like every color in the spectrum and the kitchen sink thrown in!

    Are you going to make pillow shams?

    And might I ask ... why do you call it "charm quilt?" Is that the name of the pattern?

    There's a trick to the quilt... one triangle has a twin. The quilt is given to an unmarried woman and if her beau can find the twins then theirs will be a "charmed" life.

    And yes, I have enough blocks left over to make shams. I am also going to bind it on point... it will have a zig-zag edge!
