Year of Scrappy Triangles

The final (well for now) sew along I'm trying to keep up with is over on Leila's blog.

Every week for a year she's posting a new paper pieced half square triangle design. I didn't start this until a month or so ago but it's been going since last autumn. We are on week 28 now I think and there will be 52 in total. 

Again in an effort to tackle my ever growing scrap pile I've decided to do all the triangles in plain white on the one half and scrappy blue on the other. 

This is my overflowing blue basket so it'll be interesting to see what it looks like at the end. 

 Anyway in no particular order the triangles so far are

Well these are the first 27. ( and yes Winnie and friends were fussy cut). I've yet to do this weeks. 
As you can see none are complicated, although some are more involved than others and at 6" finished they make up pretty quickly. 

I'm not 100% how I'm going to arrange them as a final quilt but as I'm adding each block into EQ it means I can play around with the setting before making my final decision. 


  1. I like all the various blues in the triangles. And you can't go wrong with Winnie!

  2. This is a fun block. Love the use of improv piecing in the blue!

  3. This is a great way to use up your blue scraps. They are making lovely triangles.

  4. I love your pieced triangles. I would never have thought of that.


I love feedback on what I sew so would love your comments. It's a chance to make new friends. I do reply to all of you as long as you are not a no-reply xxxx
