I've made some progress on the quilt. After laundering and pressing the fabric, it was on to cutting and assembly.
I got the idea for the pattern from Sharilyn at her lovelydesign blog. She has beautiful taste and gorgeous work. I'm anxiously awaiting the journey book I ordered from her. I fell in love with them the first time I stumbled upon her site. Check out that stack of paper, waiting to be turned into various books – delicious.
OK, back to the quilt. In the lovelydesign post, Sharilyn posted a link to a tutorial on a shortcut for making the triangle blocks. The Purl Bee does a much better job than I would of explaining, so if you're interested in step-by-step directions, check out their post. They really are a cinch to make, even for the quilting novice.
More to come!
