We collaborated on the fabric and I went with cutting a bit differently, but overall, the design remained the same.
Oh, and it took a load of pins to get the white outlines to align, plus some quality time with the seam ripper.
All of this was good practice for my improvisational elongated triangle class. I learned a ton and have a few other designs in the works. I don’t think I’m going to make it to that new coin quilt or magic number quilt before those classes start. Hope some of you will want to join me regardless.
The colors are very similar to the first Opposing Triangles, so of course I love it.
I dropped it off on our way out of town to Portland. I hung out with Jefe for our anniversary.
We did what every happily married couple does for their anniversary, we went to see a soccer game. Last year Vancouver, and this year Portland.
The in-laws all came, because that’s how it works. My sister-in-law and I sat snuggly in a suite and the boys with the Sounders crowd. It’s fun to hear the stories of the former teams from my father-in-law and apparently in 1975 in a playoff between the Sounders and the Timbers there were people in the trees outside the stadium trying to catch a glimpse.
Then we ate and drank ourselves through Portland. The weather was *%#!ing brilliant to boot!
I have three full days of work and then a load of quilts to bind.
Seattle Star is almost there, it was my road trip project.
Point A to Point B.
Hopefully, I will be displaying some of them here soon.
Have a great week.
