    Long time coming

    Years ago I thought I would finally have the time to do some quilting but life continued to get in the way. I had bought some great material and apparently saw a quilt I wanted to do because I cut it all up into triangles. Gave them to my daughter, she never did anything with them, she came to live with me and brought the triangles. So, this is what I finally made with some of them... I have lots more. :-( It took me a few months to figure out how to place them. I wish I had known back then the easy way of working with triangles. This was a *itch. :-) It's also tied - can't seem to get myself to try machine quilting. This is my 12th quilt in 2 years. It's actually equal although the picture shows the bottom a bit smaller.

    you did a great job. I believe the only reason it looks more narrow at the bottom is because it just is falling/flares to the back. Love the pattern.

    Nice job on your quilt. I like the setting. Looks like the perfect size for a couch throw!

    Very lovely. I really like HST's. We can do so much with them and there are a multitude of possibilities! Oh the joy!

    Wonderful setting, beautiful fabrics. You did an impressive job of sewing the HSTs together, if you started with triangles - and next time you know how to make them the easier way.

    Wow!! Thank you all so much. I'm happy with the way it turned out but it was a journey getting there. :-) Here is more of the same material that I had put together and wasn't that keen on. What a difference. :-) Love the material, just don't like HST's. :-(

    Beautiful. It feels great when we finally get something finished. Now I'll bet you're ready to start another one.
