The long Labor Day weekend gave me some extra sewing time at the camp. I've been working on these string-pieced triangles since at least 2012, but it was more of a fabric therapy project than a planned quilt with a finishing date in sight.
Earlier this year I decided on a plan for the blocks, and cut enough light yellow center "kite" shapes to finish piecing all the triangles. This weekend my trusty Singer Model 15 (treadle) and I stitched the last of the purple and gold strings onto their foundations. Now I just have to piece the triangles into squares and rip off all the foundation papers. Maybe I can still finish this top before the end of the year?!
I still had a big collection of strings left after piecing the triangles, so I took a few minutes to tame them into some additional useful quilt block parts. The longest strings were trimmed to 1 1/2" width and will go in the bin for 1 1/2" strips. Smaller remnants were trimmed to various lengths and 1 1/2" width for Lego quilt blocks. The remaining bits will go in the crumb bin for further adventures in crumb and string piecing. Very satisfying to have everything neatly wrapped up!
