Lots of sewing this week but only one photo. I guess you are all tired of my endless sewing of scrap triangles!
All week I have been churning out 3" blocks from my paired triangle scraps.
When I tired of making pinwheels I arranged the HSTs differently to create a sort of diamond effect. I expect there is a name for this sort of block but I don't know it.
As a change from churning out little blocks I decided to use some of the diamonds to create a small 15" x 20" quilt top. I sewed 5 diamond blocks together into each row. What doesn't show up in the photo is that two blocks in each of these rows are the same, a red on cream patterned "neutral" with a wine coloured fabric. Pretty. I interspersed these row with a rabbit fabric and added a narrow pink border to bring it up to the size my local hospital prefers for their baby cots. The babies lie on the quilts and the quilts are washed in a washing machine on the ward every day so they get a hammering!
So next job is to sandwich and quilt. a nice easy project with a quilt of this size!
