Scrappy Triangles

My scrap fabric bin has been overflowing for awhile now, so I decided to use up some of the longer scraps and make a little triangle scrap quilt. I cut longer pieces into strips (without worrying about width) and then just sewed them together. I cut an equilateral triangle from a thick piece of chipboard and used that to cut out my triangles with my rotary cutter.
Sewing quilt blocks without foundation paper always feels a bit scary to me, but I used my 1/4 inch quilting presser foot and sewing the triangles together was a breeze! I ended up cutting the edge triangles off, but I’m still not completely sure where I am going with this little quilt.


I’ve started work on a little quilt using “square in square” foundation piecing, and my honey tea fabric.
I’ve been purchasing foundation paper from Joann (its on sale right now for $5 for a pack of 25) I run it through my printer, and then I don’t need to tear anything away after sewing, like you do when you foundation piece with paper. I’m still deciding just how big to make this quilt. I really need more quilts I can cuddle with instead of little mini-quilts for my wall, so I am leaning toward something big.
