This message came in this afternoon, and with the disaster of the “Ad Free” Quilt Cam Session costing more than my car payment--- I forgot to post this!
((Side note ---our debt is almost even and I will be removing the donate button soon…thank you for helping me recoup the whoops!))

Quilt Cam wasn’t a complete failure! I got all of the 42 9-patches sewn and started in on sewing star points to my Sisters Choice blocks. The original quilt I’m re-making had green points. I’m so READY for spring that I decided these shall have bright fuscia pink!
This gave me the opportunity to share live my love of bonus triangles, and getting them the size I need with no trimming down through the use of Triangle Buddies! I’ve got a stack of 8 so far….but each of the 42 blocks will give me 8 for a total of 336 bonus triangles from this quilt alone. Is it worth taking the time to do these as I go, instead of waiting for later? Oh yes! The fabric is already matched right sides together with something else…just DO IT! You’ll be glad you did.
Webbing the block rows together.
Block 1 down, 41 to go!
Have a great night, everyone! This has been one wild ride of a day!
