To answer some questions about the UFO I pin basted yesterday … the block used is called Mary’s Triangles or shaded 4 patch and while it can be pieced with triangles, there is also a method of piecing it that makes two blocks at one time and does not use triangles.
I originally learned the method in the book called Triangle Tricks which also gives you a table for making blocks of all sizes. The tutorials I found online and posted back in 2008 are no longer there so I did a quick search and found these two but I’d suggest you save or print them out in case they disappear also. It’s the same block, just two different tutorials.
This was my planned quilt …
I put the pieces away and never got back to it after finishing the top left and the bottom right sections. At Big Canoe last summer, I pulled them out and put borders on the larger section which made a nice size lap quilt – it’s now ready for quilting and I thought it might be nice as a wheelchair quilt for a veteran. The smaller section will be a doll quilt when finished.
