I did spend a bit of time cutting yesterday.  Now sewing though.

Do you know how many FQ it takes to cut out 700 half square triangles using the Easy Angle ruler and 2" strips?
  <<<< FIVE Fat Quarters !!!!
Thank goodness I had picked up exactly 5 more FQ the last time I was at LQS (thinking that would be plenty and I would have leftover to add to stash)
HA!  was I wrong.    I have one strip less than 2" wide.

I've had to put Orca on hold this week to concentrate on Christmas.   I'll have a house full for Christmas so my blocks will have to sit and wait until Monday for sure.
Thanks for stopping by....


  1. I love those browns...wow...talk about rich. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.

  2. Triangles good enough to eat! I love chocolate! My sewing is on hold for the moment too.

  3. I'm really looking forward to seeing the quilt that comes out of all this work you're doing, Linda.

  4. Your browns are beautiful! With the pinks and green - your quilt is going to be gorgeous!! Can't wait to see it!

  5. Wow, that's a lot more fabric than I thought it would be! I haven't started step 5 yet, but hopefully it will go fast once I do. Great work!

  6. I'm thinking chocolate! nice , I am doing brown as well.
    Merry Christmas :-)
