Inspiration and Fun

I always love the first weekend of the month because I meet my peeps for breakfast on Saturday morning. It’s a great way to start the day with good food and lively talk. The talk is not always about quilting though it is always inspiring.

I didn’t work on my April Patchwork Barn blocks yet. Instead I pulled out some 10-inch triangles that I inherited from my good friend and mentor Jeanne Bronikowski, my she rest in peace in quilter’s heaven.


There were a few light triangles paired with dark triangles so I continued pairing the triangles. While I was doing that I realized that some of the triangles were from my stash. Then I remembered that we were in a triangle exchange together along with quilter from all over the U.S. I don’t know what Jeanne had in store for these triangles but I decided to make Delectable Mountains.  I still need to make a few more blocks and play with the layout.


Once the triangles were sewn together I trimmed them down to 8 inches because that is easily divisible by four. That left me with all these little scraps. I just love how little scraps look when they are piled up. They look so pretty I didn’t want to throw them away.


So? What to do with them. This!


Not sure what I am going to do with these babies, maybe coasters for the MooseFeathers.

It has been a great weekend. Next weekend will be starting out pretty awesome also. I’m taking a bus from My Material Matters to Rosemount for International Quilt Festival. It’s going to be so much fun.

Happy Quilting
