Triangle QAL

Well I'm still on target with the Triangle QAL hosted by The Sassy Quilter. I've gone from a stack of beautiful prints (Clover Sunshine-Cloudy by Alison Glass), added in some stash solids as I cut big 9" triangles . . .
And now have my rows pieced and overflowing the design wall.
I don't need to document how many time I used my seam ripper to get this far, do I?

  5. Well it's comforting to know you've had to rip out a few too. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I started my first row piecing one triangle at a time with pretty good success. But I was curious as to why Paula suggested sewing them in pairs and then sewing them together. Figured it must be better than what I was doing. NOT!!!! For the life of me I could not figure out how to line the pairs up and ripped out my seam about 4 times, called it quits and went back to one at a time. You? And did you pin and press each seam as you went? I did, and felt like it took for.ever. I wondered if a more experienced quilter had any tips or shortcuts, if there are any, she'd be willing to share? ๐Ÿ˜„

  6. Very lovely! I have had to rip out a bunch as well. Usually when I'm sewing pairs of triangles into pairs of pairs.

  9. Wow! I love your color scheme for this triangle quilt! So rich and pretty!
    I was wondering if I am the only person that would be ripping , ripping, ripping to get them lined up correctly! That's why I haven't started one yet...
