A New Project

A little over a year ago, I bought Edyta Sitar's Friendship Triangle book.  It was about the same time I started her Friendship Strip Spool Quilt.  I also picked up a roll of half square triangle paper.  I think this stuff is genius.  But, so monotonous....

I did the whole roll.  I think I made way more than I need for this one project but hopefully, I'll be able to do another one with the extras.  It was a lot of triangle papers. 
It almost killed me.  Some of the most boring sewing I've done in a really long time!  And, my machine now squeaks when it stops.  So, you hear hum, hum, hum, squeak.  Hum, hum, hum, squeak.  No, really, it doesn't bother me at all.

Here's a bad picture of what I'm doing.  She has it as a really large wall hanging.  I'm going to just add to it and make it a queen size quilt.  My niece has been married for a few years now and I'm a little behind on the gifting.  Oops.
Then I decided that my night hadn't been boring enough, so I quilted 100 leaves for our Quilt Show Ribbons.  Yeah, that's how I roll.

That's a lot of leaves! Love the new quilt - it's one of many of her patterns I would love to make (except those triangles make me crazy, too...always end up appliquéing after I've sewn a couple of sheets!).
