Bitty Triangles

Tonya here. I've been busy sewing! I'm beginning to think I'm a bit crazy for picking this size of triangle - the unfinished squares are 2".  Right now I have lots of triangles and some squares. I've got a LOT more sewing to do.


But I had to see how my colors were working. I've already cut some additional golds and warm colors. And I was trying to not throw in too much pink and purple - I didn't want it to look little girly. But I think this quilt needs it!

I have no idea how many triangles I actually need and how many I've actually cut. I'll have fun with any leftovers...

I read that black is for happiness in the Amish culture....have you read that anywhere?

This going to be just amazing.

Tonya, it's going to be beautiful! I'm off to house sit some place where I don't have internet access but I'm hoping my fabrics arrive while I'm gone. Then I'll be ready to start when I get back home.

I only meant I thought you were crazy for wanting to do all of those tiny triangles... I never had a doubt that it would be beautiful!

Kim said...

Tonya do you have a favorite way to make half square triangles?
Just thought I would ask since you are gonna make a million of them :0).
