60 degree Triangles

This past week I broke out the Baby Accuquilt Go and a new die for 60 degree triangles.  I have two baby quilts to make this year, down from four in 2016.  I don’t know the genders yet, although I know one couple is having a gender reveal party soon.  I think I have a fifty-fifty chance of getting at least one girl.  This quilt is done in soft peaches, tan and white with a bit of yellow for excitement.  I have not decided what to do for borders yet.  I have a bunch of HSTs that I cut from the scraps off the Go die.  I thought I would use them around the edges, but first I have to square up the top by adding in some half triangles.  I have some white Kona that matches nicely, may just do that.

In knitting news, I broke down and started a new project.  Judy at Patchwork Times posted about a new Ravelry club in  On the Needles ,  The Shawl Society ll, Curious Handmade, by Helen Stewart.  I found two skeins of Madeline Tosh Merino Light in my stash to use, the color way is Whiskey Barrel, the pattern is called Fairy Hill.  So far I have 29 rows done, after one sitting.  This pattern is written differently than what I am used to, but I like it.  It’s more like a table or spread sheet, and at the end of each row, there is a stitch count.  I have done lace knitting before, but it frustrates me to no end not knowing how many stitches I should have on my needles at any given row.

 

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork times today for Design Wall Monday today.  Since this is a post mostly about baby quilts, I’m linking up with Michelle’s Romantic Triangle for “Let’s Make Baby Quilts” too.
