great idea

Blah colors, but a great way to use stripes and tiny triangles at each corner.

 So far it's 54x29" but I may crop it down to this shape... after I quilt it.

In the meantime I love this from Red Pepper Quilts

Darker and more intense than picture shows. It is up against that puke brown set I dyed and you saw on my shelf. The texture of the fabric is top notch dyer's cloth. Really exquisite. I order another set of 16 half yards in another rainbow gradation. The darks are soooo dark and rich, just a lot of dye was used.

 Very nice patterning. Even darker, almost black in real life.

Thought you might like this

After I left you I went over to McKay's and got these two books. I think you already have Priscilla's, no?

I bought the scrap quilt one just for this three piece quilt. I must make a ton of these....

And I liked these so much but will have to try making them in hand dyeds. And fused of course.
Then I brought home my plant and put it here.

And we moved the mirror to my room too. Fills the gap.

Eye Candy

I might have to make something like this too. I was always afraid of the bias edges, but with paper piecing, nothing stretches out of shape. Who wouldn't love a nap under this. I like the narrow red strip running through each block.
I had that box full of triangles and saw a way to use them. Very simple and fast, no cutting, except to make the nine squares.
