Cloudy sewing day

After my late start I got on the ball first thing this morning and cut out all my triangles for the triangle quilt along. I love this fabric pull ever more in the daylight!

I appreciated Paula's detailed instructions on how to cut the triangles using various rulers.  Like some others, I have the funky Marti Michell ruler (it was the only one available locally.)  The unique thing about this ruler is that the lines on the ruler are labeled with the finished side lengths of the triangles.  I think it might be useful for a beginner quilter, but since I have been quilting for (could it be?) almost 5 years now, I have already learned to think in terms of cut sizes and seam allowances, so it's just frustrating.

I also sewed more blocks for the Rainbow Waves quilt. I am up to 24 now, half way there!  Here's to a weekend of happy sewing :)

Linking up to the Triangle Quilt Along.


  1. Can't wait to see your design :) I have to admit the MM ruler sounds frustrating and I am a relative newbie! Amazing how tools can enhance or detract from the experience. But you are done with that - on to the fun part - laying out quilt top!!

  2. I love your choice of colors and fabrics. I have that top print in my stash and almost used this with some yellows, aquas and other grays that I have in my stash. I like the orange I see in there. Looking forward to seeing more of your quilt in progress ... :) pat

  3. Oh,those are very pretty,looking forward to seeing it come together!
