It’s the third week of the Triangle Quilt Along over at The Sassy Quilter.

This week’s goal is to sew all of the triangles into rows, and I am happy to report that I am once again right on schedule.  I sewed together 14 rows of 19 triangles… well mostly. I can’t sew a few of my rows into entire rows because my large triangles are 2 rows tall. They will get added when I sew those double rows together.

As I’ve pieced these triangles together, I keep feeling like this is the perfect palette for this time of year.  The snows seem to finally be over, but now there are days and days of dreary rain, with a few bright spots or color as the first of the flowers begin to appear.  Maybe I’m more affected by my surroundings when I design than I thought. What do you think?

    Looking good! I think how we are feeling or seeing things probably does show more than we think. Now I’m going to look closer at my projects and see! We are moving along so quick. Almost done:)

    • Andrea on April 7, 2014 at 2:38 pm

      Yes, it’s going a lot faster than I thought it would, but I’m still managing to keep up. It has me pretty excited.

    I’m a novice – how did you figure out the cutting size for the larger triangles?

    • Andrea on April 8, 2014 at 7:52 am

      The cutting size in 4 of the smaller triangles pieced together. Or if it makes more sense to you, take three sewn together in a row, the longest side of that row is the length of the sides of the larger triangle. I’ve had several people ask, so I’m thinking I’ll do a tutorial.

      • Anne on April 8, 2014 at 7:55 am

        Thank you. A tutorial would be great – I’m glad I wasn’t the only one to ask the question!
