Scrap Happy Saturday

Today is Scrap Happy Saturday.  I actually have something to show!  You can check out others here.  I started making paper-pieced string triangles.  I was inspired by the pillow that Crazy Mom made.  You can check it out here.

Here are my pics.

These are 4 inch equilateral triangles, with a 1/4 inch seam allowance.  Most are sewn in rows, others are sewn like log cabins.  They are a lot of fun and very addictive.  I'm using leftover homework for the papers.  I got that idea from Crazy mom too!  I have 10 purple triangles.

Here they are in a row.  I haven't decided how to sew them together yet.  I am going back and making 10 of the colors previously used in the rainbow scrap challenge (red, blue, green).  I think I will alternate colors and have the same colors make a diagonal row!?  I have until January to figure that out!

Happy Easter

Loving these - can't wait to see what you do with them - and adding the other colours should be gorgeous!

Your purple triangles are so FUN. They will be awesome as part of a rainbow striped quilt. What a great way to use up little bits and pieces.
