Remember that pack of turnovers....??


For those of you that aren't quilters......turnovers are pre-cut triangles.....

Now....it's a well known fact that i dislike working with triangles...so how this pack of turnovers ended up in my sewing room is still a mystery to me......must have been a weak moment.....


Well.....the little devils were in there sticking their tongues out....putting their fingers in their ears and humming.....nah....nah...nah....at me!!

Walking into the sewing room was frightening......


So ..... i cut the suckers up and made them into diamonds!!

Paired them with white......didn't even know i had white muslin......then added a bright orange border.....

I think i may add another white border and then maybe a purple border...


Now they think they're a magic carpet!!

Quick...... catch'm!!

Little windy up here today.....

Enjoy

  2. Hi there, I love this post because it was so whimsical! This quilt reminds me of orange sherbert and I love all the diamonds. I hope the snow has subsided for a few days/hours-we haven't had any since last week but it is mighty cold here.
    I've got to shop today for fabric for our upcoming grandbaby but haven't figured out a pattern yet.
    Have a wonderful, warm day and great week celebrating the New Year.
    Hugs, Noreen

  3. That is beautiful, & I agree with rmslil....I sure wish I had your talent too. I love seeing the snow in the background. I thought of you this morning while I was making out the check to pay our propane bill.
