Another Saturday morning and progress is being made. I now have 4 blocks and 14 triangles. It is really fun just choosing which block I want to do next. I am keeping the progress report on the Kathy Sampler tab. Summer is sneaking in, with a few days this week being extremely hot. It is cooler now and almost seems that it is going to rain again. We have had early rain this year and it is wonderful to see the garden being green again.
Have an amazing weekend!

First week on starting my new quilt and progress has been made. I have made 6 of the border triangles and 1 block.
I have decided to do blocks and triangle together as boredom started to creep in. I am using alternate coloured background to add some depth to the blocks.
I am doing the sashing at the same time as the blocks, this was one of the lessons that I learnt whilst doing the Dear Jane. The second lesson was to ensure that all of the paper was out of the pieces and that each piece was re-sized at the end of making it.
Here are two of the triangle, the rest are on my Sampler tab. I will try to add all the pieces as I make them. It is fun to see how a quilt comes together after the fact.
The triangles are being made with contrasting colours. I was shown a cute trick of finding the contrasting colour using Paint.
Hope you all have an amazing weekend full of things that you want to do and not just things you have to do.
Have a good one!
