Mail Call Monday - Tumbling Triangles

Bonnie Hunter is hosting a Leader/Ender Challenge.  This year's block???  It's the Tumbler.

I thought about joining in, but I've never really been a huge fan of Tumbler Quilts, so why bother, right?

I really, REALLY enjoy a good QAL,,,  so...  I thought and considered.  I considered and thought.

And, then...

Tumbling Triangles will be the name of my quilt.  :o))

WHAT, Joyful???  How does that even fit?!?!?


(In my mind) Triangles are similar to Tumblers, right?!

I absolutely LOVE a good Triangle Quilt(!), but I dread the thought of cutting a ton of them!!

What will you DO, Joyful???

I looked at an assortment of methods for cutting triangles and asked Needleb if she had a Triangle Template for her Sizzix Big Shot die cutter.  No.  She didn't.  So I dismissed the idea...

... For another few weeks.

And, then...

A package arrived in the mail:

WHAT have you done, Joyful???

I got on to order THIS triangle template for Needleb's cutter:

She won't mind letting me borrow her machine!!  (Joyful says hopefully.)

Until next time...
Cut faster!!!


  1. What fun! I can't wait to see progress.

    I'm terribly in love with the Crazy Mom Quilts "In the Middle" triangle quilt that she showed on her blog recently. And I have the Tri-Recs ruler in my tool collection. I know that I even saw that particular magazine the last time I was in my local grocery store. I strongly suspect that I will be picking up a copy of the pattern very soon...

  2. GREAT idea!!! Can't wait to see what you do!
