Mentions of worldwide quilting day yesterday reminded me that I have not shared any photos of my current patchwork project, a sweet baby blanket made from hundreds of tiny triangles.
I usually start a new quilt project by drawing ideas from a few different places, like pinterest, blogs and fabric stores. This time I saw the loveliest quilt on the purl bee blog in the most gorgeous Japanese yarn dyed linen blend solids, and had to make it!
I am using the traditional paper piecing technique, which is quite time consuming, but a great way of ensuring accuracy. I have nearly reached the point where all of the triangles are tacked, and I will be able to put the blocks together. I love that part…choosing the colours that go well together, and then matching up the blocks into rows.
