Beveled Blocks

I've started on a quilt to hang on the wall.  I do have some quilting experience, but haven't done much at all recently.  That previous experience told me that a kit was probably the best way for me to go.  I chose this one.

When the kit arrived, I was disappointed with the colors of the batiks, but now that I've been using them I really like them.  Half of the triangles are predominantly darker and half are lighter.  One of each gets sewn together to make 12" squares.

This week I got all of the triangles pieced.  The bisecting seam still needs to be sewn on all the blocks.  And that's how it's going to stay for awhile since I'm leaving tomorrow and will be out of town for a few days (spring break!).

  1. I like batiks fabric so I'm sure this will be a very nice and interesting wall quilt.
