Triangle QAL Update

Hi guys!

I haven't had much time for blogging lately, my allergies have been horrible! I don't know how it is in your neck of the woods but around here pollen is everywhere. I am loving the warm sunshine we've been having. Even though it has caused me not to do much sewing. But I have been able to work on my triangle quilt top (Triangle QAL, Sassy Quilter). And I've used my seam ripper more times than I can count. lol!

I used a triangle ruler that I had bought six months ago, when I first planned on making a quilt like this. It is NOT a 60 degree triangle ruler. Which is why I think I had so much trouble. If you check out Paula's (The Sassy Quilter) instructions using a 60 degree triangle ruler, you will see it's much easier than the one I have.

You have to make sure your tips are right, because if their not, you will NOT have a 1/4 seam allowance on your rows after they are sewn together.

Unfortunately I had to learn the hard way. But don't we all at some time or another. I'm running behind so I've got a lot to do this week to finish on schedule.
Sorry for such a short post, but the baby just woke up. Mommy hood calls!
