While I wait for my block of the month projects to arrive in the mail, I pulled out this kit that my husband gave me last Christmas (2016!). It looks like it will be a beautiful quilt and I can’t wait to complete it.
This is a Quiltworx pattern with all the extensive instructions they are known for. It’s full of beautiful fall-colored Batik fabrics and I love every one of them.
Last year I managed to get all the fabrics cut and put together in pairs for each block. I even sewed a couple together!
There are 84 of these triangle units for the inside part of the quilt and they’re all paper pieced. Here, I’m showing how I use a postcard for the folding and trimming.
It gets a little monotonous. Also, I’ve found that these tightly woven Batiks are a little troublesome for my sewing machine. I’ve never had this much trouble with Batiks. They keep breaking my thread and doing strange things to my machine.
I think I have about 27 triangles finished which means only 57 more to go. I do a few at a time and then put it away again. This is one of those projects that may take me a while to finish.
Maybe I’ll have all the triangles finished by this fall and then I can put it together. However, there’s also a paper pieced border of strips so that might take a while as well. I’ll keep you updated on the progress of this one!
