    Major kudos to you for persevering because 3 times is definitley the charm with this pattern. I love it done in the blenders. So much more striking and to me visually appealing. Great job!

    Thank you everyone for all the encouraging words. I hadn't noticed the price tag Ms. Fallert had on her quilt. Boy! My grandson is getting a very expensive gift!
    The one saving grace in this madness is after I've sliced and diced the two sets of triangles and I've mixed the strips together I only have to match the middle seams. The other seams just fall where they will. The second plus is the strips, after they're cut, are on the bias so they fit together very easily. Thank goodness. All I have to do is remember what goes where! And I've already sewn one set together dark to light when it should have been light to dark! Oh, well. It's not the first error and probably won't be the last! And it's not fatal!!!
    Thank you again! I appreciate your positive feed back more than you know!

    This is going to look amazing when you finish it in the fabrics you've chosen.

    That is stunning. I am curious to know if you press your seams open or to one side. It's great to have a new challenge!

    How did your grandson come to choose this pattern? How old is he?

    He made a very sophisticated choice - - - -

    (I don't think I would have shown him the pattern!)

    The triangle pieces are paper pieced so the seams are to one side. When I stitch the triangles together I'm ironing the seams open-just because. The strips, in the last step, I'm just ironing to one side. Seems to be working, so far!

    I goofed and shared this pattern, along with a few others, for Shawn to pick from. I've been wanting to try out this pattern and Shawn picked it. Wouldn't you know?!! It is for his eleventh birthday, his "big boy" quilt. He asked his mom, " Can Grandma really make that?" now I have to prove that I can indeed make it.
