The Stitching Bug Has Struck Again. This time in Tassie

barb has been busy stitching, to get her quilt top finished. she started this project some time ago but in the last few months has been patching furiously to get all the hexagons in place. next she will move on to the batting, then backing. when i saw her work i just had to take a pic, especially to show lizzie who was responsible for getting us going.....                                                                 



barbara, sister of paula and cousin of lizzie proudly displays her project






and now my attempt at a triangles quilt, inspired by lizzies, using all the little bits of left over fabric, or so i thought, but i keep looking for more colours and patterns. lizzie has kindly sent me lots of bits and pieces and i have purchased some...just a few. it started with about a dozen triangles, just to see if i was going to like doing it. once it had grown to 12 inches square, i had to keep going. i was going to do random piecing but after doing the centre piece, decided to do a bit of a pattern around the main square. this is the result.
