BAWARAO1 – Triangle Torment

I took on one of those boring jobs yesterday…checking my triangles for the next border for squareness and unpicking those I was not happy with. Here’s my work in progress. The strip I decided to unpick and the one’s in progress…

It seems like I got on a roll when I was putting these triangle sets together from the offcuts of ‘flying geese’ blocks a few weeks ago, and somewhere along the line I stopped checking the starting size of the triangles before I joined them. Turns out that not checking them was a bad idea because the ones I had trimmed to size were neat and regular, and the ones I had not trimmed were not good. That is, when they were good they were very good but when they were bad they were horrid 🙂

Normally I would find this a frustrating job to unpick and trim the pieces but I was not feeling very well so this was a suitably mindless task to do. I need to get better though so I can get back to my wild flowers quilt there is only a few weeks until I need to post it, completed, for the competition and those amazing coloured fabrics keep calling me from across the room!

Happy stitching

About bertcollections

I began quilting, with the help of some friends, in 2005, and have been quilting ever since. In that time, I’ve completed several projects in a variety of styles and colour combinations. My approach to quilting generally doesn’t involve using a particular pattern. I tend to have a concept I want to bring to life, or find a fabric on sale somewhere that looks like it could be turned into something fun. As the photos in the 'Introductions' post show, my quilts cross a range of styles, but generally use some strong colours and shapes.
