Nameless Quilt

I'm still working on the nameless project. In my last post about these blocks, someone commented that they were called Indian Hatchet blocks. I googled it and found a pattern here.

My blocks are different in that I'm using different sized triangles and setting the small blocks differently.

I sewed a lot of squares then sew them into blocks. So far I've sewn 14 of the 8" finished blocks. This is not the final arrangement, just for fun to see my progress.



Then I got busy and pieced more of the small blocks. These are the triangles that are left. It's not surprising that there are more blue triangles than any other color.  There isn't much variety anymore.



Several people commented that putting sashing in between the blocks would look nice, I agree with that idea. It would certainly simplify sewing the blocks together.

But for now, I'll keep piecing the larger blocks until I've used most of the small blocks. I don't know how large this quilt will be. It maybe I'll just keep working on and off on this quilt for several years until I decide it's large enough. Then I'll decide how to put it together.

  2. I have used a pattern something like that in the past but the whit in the block was narrower I don't remember what it was called.

  3. Hi Gretchen! I love this project using up all the smaller pieces of your stash. I also love that you're not stressed one bit about getting it finished or even how it will look. Thanks so much for linking up this week. ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. Like the colors! I also like nameless-gives a person more room to be themselves instead of toeing the line. Hot work baling hay!

  18. Wonderful scrap quilt.... refreshing to hear someone admit that they might just toy with an idea for years until it finds it's finished form. I hope you enjoy every moment. Thanks for sharing at the Chameleon's Colour & Inspiration party.
