Somehow... the triangles (and all my weird measurements and ideas on graph paper) all made it through a pregnancy (hence the grand idea of cutting like 800 triangles), being taken out and put away 20 times over the last four years, and a move. Honestly, these triangles are what made me get my sewing machine out again after being out of sight for a good two years.
As I write this post, the two completed rows and the rest of the blocks are sitting in a drawer... I am hoping by writing about this crazy quilt I will be inspired to find a way to finish.
I've learned a ton since I started this quilt and I would never make a quilt like this now. I've even learned a ton since I actually started putting these triangles together a few months ago... I stopped piecing the blocks together several projects ago because I was a bit disheartened by how much the size was shrinking. As I look at the pictures now... I am almost tempted to rip the seams out of the two rows I have and maybe do a small sashing between each block. Sashing wasn't part of the original plan... but then again I didn't know what sashing was... and I thought I should make a king size quilt out of tiny triangles.
I want to finish this thing as a gift to myself back then... I don't want to stray too far from my vision then (even though I think it is ridiculous now)... but I also think it might be okay to show myself from then some of the changes I've made and the things I've learned.
A little late but I am linking up to Show Off Friday and Whoop Whoop Friday!
