Design Wall Monday - June 19, 2017

Well, I am still working on the Valentine Quilt, but for a break from viewing my design wall, I thought I'd show you pictures of the blocks I am making for Lisa Bongean's Triangle Gatherings.  Her website is (Here)   I first talked about these triangle blocks (Here)

How could I pass up a 'gathering' of hst blocks?  They are made of 16 small hst pieces, and since I have shoeboxes full of hst's, it has been fun to assemble them into Lisa's weekly patterns.

This week I made #29 through #36 and here is a picture:





There are 45 patterns published so far, and I have made 36 of them.  The way I write out the patterns is to copy the block pictures onto graph paper.  This way, I don't waste a lot of computer ink printing out a pattern page for each square, as I already have the hsts in my stash.  Here's a picture to show you what I mean:


  

What's on your design wall this Monday?

Hi Judy,
Thanks for sharing the link to Lisa's website. I will check that out, and maybe it's not too late to join in. I love the blocks you've shared - some of them look hard until you remember they are HSTs. What a great idea of putting the blocks on graph paper rather than printing them out. Smartie pants! ~smile~ Roseanne

What a smart way to have a record of the patterns. Your blocks look great. Makes me wish I was more organized and had my hst all in one place.

Mia said...

Great blocks! Beautiful fabrics!

I would probably done the same as you and make small drawings instead of using up so much ink and paper for the blocks. I decided not to add the triangle quilt project to my overwhelming list of quilts to be made. You are doing quite well with your blocks.
