    It always seems interesting to follow along as a quilt is in process.. the bits and pieces slowly come together and emerge into a wondrous work of art, a useful, beautiful creation. Since I have just started on a journey to make a totally different kind of quilt (at least new and different for me!), I have decided to try to chronicle my journey.
    I have designed the quilt in EQ5. It is mainly Angle Play blocks. Angle Play is a trademark of Margaret Miller. I attended two of her classes locally and she is so inspiring! I am using her Angle Play Templates for this quilt.. They make rectangle triangle blocks a snap!

    Hi, isn't Margaret Miller the greatest. I have done 2 of her Angle Play quilts so far and I love them. I believe she will be at Sew Expo again in March there in Puyallup. Last year I actually worked with her in her booth there and had a blast.

    Which Angle Play design are you doing? If you would like to see pictures of my 2 Angle play quilts I will post them for you.

    Thanks,
    Sherryl

    Second set is called Market Basket. I have made two and I am finishing up the two mirror images tonight.
    I am learning all about doing partial seam construction! Even after these six blocks (so far) I am still not totally comfortable with the process..

    After these, it may be a while before I complete the next set blocks. Work.... :shock:

    With the Angle Play templates all of the points should come out nice and pointy - one of the main features of her templates.

    Now what kind of a remark is that? Of course you must post your two quilts Sherryl we would all love to see them. You must never tempt a quilter with that and leave us hanging in the air, asking us if we would like to see them , ( silly girl) lol. Definitely post your two quilts. This is new for me, I haven't seen or even heard of Angle play quilts before tonight. I want to see them all. I'm greedy like that.

    Yikes I am having trouble finding the other picture of the Desert Star one that I did of my Margaret Miller quilt top. I will post pictures of that one as soon as I find them.

    Sorry didn't mean to be a tease - lol.

    Here are the 2 angle play quilt tops that I have made. I love Margaret Miller's templates. And she makes her directions so easy to follow with great pictures too.

    Thanks,
