Patchwork Progress

Remember a couple weeks ago when I asked for opinions on which patchwork arrangement you liked best for my sew-along project for Sew,Mama,Sew’s quilting month? The tally came out to this:

The simple triangles pattern received 11 votes.

The zig-zag pattern received 7 votes.

The diamond pattern received 4 votes.

The hourglass pattern received 3 votes.

When it came time for me to make a decision, I liked all of these patterns because they show the variety of patterns you can make with simple half-square triangles. Since I am going to make these blocks into placemats, I made one of each!

I continued with the sew-along, so the next block was a Spiderweb. I have never made a spiderweb block, but it was definitely on my list to try. It was an easy block to put together, kinda like the string-pieced blocks, which I really love making. It was magical to watch the white star shapes emerge in the centers as I lined up the pieced triangles.

The most recent block was a Dresden Plate, another patern I have always wanted to make. OMG, I adore this one!

I’m not sure which block will be next, but this is the last week for the sew-along, so I’m happy I was able to stay caught up. I can just imagine how cool this set is going to look on our table for summer.
