Over the past couple year I've rummaged the stash and scrap bins, hunted down, scrounged, and was gifted some fabric scraps of black on white, white on black, and as it turns out more than a few with added colors. All to make a long envisioned black and white triangle quilt using my 60 degree triangle ruler.
I started cutting the 8" triangles as a reward for working on the quilting of Ruby each afternoon, and by the time she was completed there were enough triangles cut to begin laying them out on the design wall. My envisioned quilt was to be around 72 inches square, requiring 16 triangles for each horizontal row, and 10 vertical rows. The design wall is 48 inches wide by about 80 inches high. Which of course required designing and piecing in three long diagonal sections. After I had everything stitched together I laid it out on the guest bed.
In the garden, the near constant rain over the past two weeks has ruined some of the crops, too late for replanting some of them, the ground is saturated, and the weeds are flourishing. The blueberries are just beginning to ripen and we're hoping for a couple sunny weeks with much lower humidity so they don't mildew before they ripen completely. Not too many flowers blooming right now but there are a few lilies
Til next time, happy stitching.
