Thought I Would Share

For any of you that might be finishing up your anniversary quilt from Temecula , A friend of mine from Illinois and I both ran into same problem with measurements of corner triangles and setting triangles.  Instead of 7 1/2"  square cut triangle cut twice for setting triangle, I  ended up using them for the corner triangles. For the  setting triangles I used 8 1/2"  square cut twice diagonally .  I think they forgot that the 4 1/2"  blocks have 1 1/2"  sashing on each side.  Could be just my mistake but I don't think so.  Tell me if you had same problem of triangles being to small.  I had not finished block four and five so I will show you now.

Also if you take a peek over at Pam Buda's blog , she has a weekly sew-a-long that might intrigue you.

Don't want anyone to go thru withdrawels!
Kim Diehl will have a new book out in May called "Simple Charm Book".  I am a fan of her books,so looking forward to it.  Enjoy what you do or find something new! All for now, martha
