Indian Hatchet

Sunday morning of the retreat, I pulled my Indian hatchet project (after I had finished orange sherbet) formerly known as nameless quilt. I've accumulated quite a few cut off triangles over the last several years. It was time to make more blocks.


The little blocks have been trimmed to 2.5". Next thing is to sew them into larger blocks. I really don't know when that is going to happen. 


I don't know how large this quilt will become. My original idea had been to make the blocks into a charity quilt but I'm liking this hodgepodge of triangles. I may just keep it for myself.

Just to keep you informed, I'm leaving tomorrow and flying to Phoenix for several weeks. I have posts set to publish but I won't be linking up anywhere. If you want to read my posts, you'll either have to subscribe or actively look for my blog.

Nameless quilt is so cool. Great use of those triangles.

Have a great holiday. I sewed all my triangles( make that most) into 1/2 squares for " future projects" .
Stay safe and sew on !

Have a great time away. I'm sure you have packed plenty of hand work to keep you busy. Safe travels.

Talk about not wasting any scraps. Wow! Good for you. Love the orange sherbet quilt, too!

I love how it is looking (I peeked at the previous 'nameless' posts) - I also have a lot of small triangles and last year made a quilt using just one triangle per square, so I am keen to have a go at this with two triangles on opposite corners.

So much potential in your cheerful little triangles, Gretchen! Thanks for linking up with me for TGIFF and have a WONDERFUL time in Phoenix!
