What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

thanks.  Well considering that novelties are fully half of my stash, I do need to use them.  Part of the fun on this round with B&W is getting to use my "other" stash.  Apart from the occasional borders and bindings, I haven't been using them too much.

Well, what a bother posting....our internet has become a pill lately.  Something going on with the router....sigh.

anyway, two more triangles for the foreverrrrrrrr DJ project!  And one more prepped for the applique.  I counted, here is my tally:

26 Triangle blocks done

106 blocks completed

2,883 pieces in these blocks so far.

how long will I continue this?  I don’t know.  But I am hopeful at this point that I can get enough triangles pieced to make them useful for a pretty finish, even if it is not full size!

Doggone, I forgot the picture!

Half of the center one was done when I couldn’t sleep last night.

Those are *amazing*.  Absolutely, amazingly, intricately precise.  And SO MANY of them.  I am in awe of your ambition.

My ambition?   Ummmmmm.... I think this is one that I got suckered into way back when.   

But, I do enjoy the challenge of figuring out how to make some of the blocks!  At least when the mood is right.  This afternoon I began figuring out if I did 10 rows of ten instead of 13 x 13.   But then I have 6 more squares I don’t want left over.

so, I may go for 11 x 10.  Then I need 4 blocks and 16 triangles.   Aiming for that for right now.....

certainly seems do-able....at least the end of the tunnel is in sight!

Go with the design that gives you the leftover squares and then use those leftovers for the elegant label on the back.

any leftover blocks could be combined and made into a throw pillow.

After building my thread cover (see separate post) I've now started on the next black & white novelty quilt.  If you've missed the explaination, I'm calling them B&W because all the novelties are B&W backgrounds (I'm trying to use up some of that stash).  I'm combining them with bright tone on tone blenders.  This is the 3rd in the series.  It's a disappearing 9 patch pattern.  Last time I made this pattern was about 8 years ago (or at least th?at is about how old the little girl is that got the previous version).  The next rows are green, then purple, then orange.  This one goes together very fast since I'm using the kit I put together a couple of weeks ago.  I decided to do an easy one.  The next 2 kits are going to take some thought and concentration (which I don't have much of right now)>
