Triangle Takeover

The sewing bug has hit me again and I have been pressing and cutting fabric like crazy.
I am working on a self-designed quilt that uses stripped triangles. So the first part of this one was to cut the strips.
The fabric is High Street from Moda. It is bright, saturated, and gorgeous! This was from a quilt kit that I received for Christmas. I didn’t like the quilt pattern that was included so I designed my own. The background fabric that was included is Kona Zen Grey and it also came with some orange for the binding.
Then I pieced 3 random strips together until I ran out of strips.
I then cut those strips into triangles.

I’m still working out the cutting measurements for the rest of the block. So, more to come….

I, once again, gave in to a Craftsy sale. I bought another Free Spirit Fat Quarter Box at a wonderful price. This one was a huge SCORE! Here come the photos:

I have no idea what I’m going to do with any of it.

Back to triangles……I also cut out an over abundance of triangles for the Triangle Quilt Along.

So, over 350 triangles later, I am ready to start piecing some of this together.

      This one was a really good one. I really like about 90% of the fabric. The last Free Spirit one I bought was more like 75% of the fabric. It is a little bit of ‘hit or miss’ but I enjoy taking the chance. Free Spirit puts out great fabric lines so the odds are pretty good that it will be something I like and will use.

  3. I always wondered what was in those mystery boxes. Nice.

    Those boxes are a great way to have Instant Stash! You did well. Love all your triangles. I am doing the triangle QAL but still need to get them cut out. My fabric is ironed, though. One step at a time.
