All 10 blocks finished up to date….(I know some might have 11..if you made my oops block)

First time posting on Triangle Gatherings FB ( you can do it, I promise it won’t hurt)

I spent yesterday straightening out everything from being gone 15 days…and then caught up on the 2″ & 3″ blocks…I did notice some of you had a triangle turned in a block..isn’t it nice to be told now than when its in the quilt?  And…how come we don’t notice it????lisa bongeanHere is my pic of all my blocks on my closet design wall, yes it really is in the media closet…I don’t have very much wall space in my studio…so it is what it is…those lower blocks I made previous to starting this a long time ago…so to make sure I made this triangle quilt I made it a stitch along…so it will get done…and it is much more fun to stitch with all of YOU!!!

img_9705On the left  and in back are all the brains/tv-internet-security- of the house..so its a nice closet for me to stick my 4x8foot wall in…my carry-on and my sewing machine carrier are also tucked in here along with my drying racks that are not in use…

We are almost to 10 blocks and our first give-away…I better start rounding something up….If you want a chance to win….post all 10 of your blocks(after we post them) and you may be the lucky one to win!!!
