Red White and Blue Quilt

I'm joing my blocks together, but before I started I had to figure out a little problem.

I didn't want traditional setting triangles for this quilt, so I made HSTs setting wedges.  I didn't want to use entire blocks, this way I minimize fabric waste.  I have a cousin, Craig, who is a rocket scientist, I think Craig would approve of these shapes

In other news, I got a new iron.  My old iron was over 25 years old, so it was time.  This Rowenta DW100 was inexpensive, comparitively speaking and it's about a 1000% improvement over the old iron.

I went to the San Diego Zoo, yesterday.  It was hot, humid and smoggy, not a good combo.  There were some horrible fires near the border and the smoke was effecting the air quality.  I sat down on a bench to cool off and was joined by this local guy.


May your bobbins always be full,
