Triangles!

I've been wanting to make a two color quilt, so I bought some bright green and plain black charm packs from Green Fairy Quilts. The pictures don't quite do justice to how pretty a green it really is. Having seen this fun and easy technique on making triangles, I thought I'd attempt them. I love it!
Put two squares right-sides together and
sew around all four edges.
Cut corner to corner and then
corner to corner the other direction.
Open up each cut triangle to get these cute
little blocks--iron them open.
Arrange the squares in a pattern of your liking--I
like it this way for this quilt.
Now I just need to sew all those little blocks
together, which may take a while.

To be continued...hopefully...with a finished quilt.

  1. Lime with black is currently a big favorite with me! I can't wait to see how this comes out. It's quite inspiring already, Carol!
