made as I figured out that the Tri Recs ruler set was not the same ruler that
Sarah from Confessions of a Fabric Addict is using for her Christmas in July project -
Cynthia from Quilting is more fun than Housework commented that I was making lemonade out of quilty lemons, and gave me the idea for this post! Thanks, Cynthia!
This week, I finished up the eight triangles, using the Tri Recs rulers the correct way, and ended with this layout in a rectangle that measures about 12.5 x 24.5.
To make for a quick finish, I just quilted the piece really simply with the scallop stitch on my Pfaff.
Backing is the gold I used on the back of my Circle of Sisters mini and binding is the same dark pink as the centers of the diamonds.
After I finished sewing on the binding, I decided to add some big stitch hand quilting with white perle cotton to some of the diamonds.
Even though this wasn't what I set out to make, it's been fun to turn it into something I like anyway!
Meanwhile, I've ordered a true 45 degree triangle ruler, the same one Sarah recommends using, and as soon as it comes I'm going to try her blocks all over again!
