So that is what I have been working on this weekend. I gathered up everything I would need. I learned an easy way to make these triangle blocks in a class based on Martha Thompson's book, "Start With Squares". And I thought they would be perfect to use in the auction quilt. Block rows were layed out and then sewn together to make the main part of the quilt. Two simple borders were cut and sewn on. Everything was layered together in a quilt sandwich so that I could pin-baste and machine quilt.
I still have to sew on binding and make a label for the back. This quilt is fairly small, about the size for a nice wallhanging or table topper. I am pleased with how it is coming along. Will post a picture of the final product when I'm all through. (update--- see completed quilt here.)
