Friendship Triangles!

At last this top is finished! I had trouble with the mitered corners but I sought professional help at Delphine's Quilt Shop.Delphine showed me how to. The little triangles came from an exchange at the shop last summer! Love it, it is 60 inches square. The pattern is from Laundry Basket Quilts.

Here is a close up of my corner that turned out perfectly! I am so proud.

Yesterday, my son was sick. Had tons of sewing and organizing planned. Well, with the ice, school was canceled. I took the whole day off work to take him to the doctor and get to the pharmacy. We lost power for the afternoon. Driving through town without stoplights is not easy!! It is amazing how the whole world grinds to a stop without power. Businesses closed. We couldn't find much to do around the house. We read books, talked, and I did hand sew a quilt binding. 

 Just as it was getting very cold, the power came on. I did get the next Civil War Diary quilt block finished and the corners for the triangle quilt as above. I didn't get the organizing done because the closet needed some light. There is always today, right?

Congratulations to me, it is our 25th anniversary. I am so happy today.

You're right! There's a better picture on your blog. Your corner turned out perfect. The next quilt I make is going to have mitered corners.

I LOVE the friendship triangles quilt! You will have to show me how to miter corners. I had someone show me once and then I forgot due to lack of quilting....
