Triangles & More Free Patterns

Home sweet home. I got home about 4:30, Mike took me out to supper shortly afterwards and I haven’t even unpacked my bag yet – I will get to that shortly!

I didn’t have much sewing time as I thought.  I was so busy.  We packed up things for goodwill.  We packed up things to throw in the trash – we packed up bags of paper to be shredded.  Wow and we barely made a dent!!  My sister Mary and my brother Larry came over to help – maybe we were so busy looking through old photos and such that we didn’t get done with as much as we had hoped?  We were totally exhausted by evening though and they went home and mom and I rested!  This morning I was able to go through a little more and my brother came back over in time to carry the trash out – funny how that worked out Smile

The triangles grew a little bit – from this:

To this!  12 more triangles if I count right – who knows on that! I’m tired.  Mom has gotten interested in this quilt now and wants to see the progress – I guess that means I have to keep making it Smile

I found a site that has more free patterns!!  New York Beauty paper piece blocks although of course you could always add a quarter inch seam allowance and hand piece or machine piece.  Go here to see:  site is called Ulas quilt page – a German blog.  Some patterns you pay for, and some are free.

A group of us on Block Central actually used that site and those patterns to do a NY Beauty challenge about five years ago. The wallhanging I made from mine hangs in my living room. It’s the quilted piece my youngest son has specifically said he wants after I’m gone (he already has half a dozen quilts). It’s still one of my favorites too.

I never thought of you guys having to go through all of your mom’s stuff and do something with it. That will be a job. How is she feeling?
