Work In Progress

A few weeks ago I took an online class on angles from Rachel Hauser at Stitched in Color.  I’ve taken other classes on angles, and have some experience sewing them, but I haven’t been able to get out to any classes lately.  I love going to class, but since I don’t have that option right now, I thought I’d give this a try.  I enjoyed the class.  I am also enjoying the patterns that come with it.  Right now I’m working on her Indian Blanket Quilt.  I’ve been working on it on and off for a few weeks now and finding it to be great practice sewing triangles, but also great practice with colors.  There are a lot of rows and each row has its own fabric.  



I have four rows to add, if I stop at the end of the patterns.  I was thinking about possibly adding a few rows and using it as an everyday quilt for my daughter’s bed.  I think it would go nicely in their bedroom.  So we’ll see how much extra work is involved.  Here is the last 
of the complex rows, pieced.



And here are a few ideas I have for the other rows that I haven’t started to cut or piece.  




I started this quilt as an exercise, but have found that it is really growing on me.  I have enjoyed taking my time and piecing it over several weeks.  But I am looking forward to completing it soon.
