Scrap Angels Quilt Top

I finished 2 quilt tops over the week end. The first is Scrap Angles. It is made up of half square triangles that are sorted in to light and dark.



Then set in blocks so that a secondary pattern is formed when the blocks are set together. The light is the center of the block.

I started this quilt 6 years ago. And its been down to the last 2 seams for about 2 months. Why are the last seams so hard to just do.



Okay for anyone who is interested 72 pieces in a block. 36 blocks = 2592 triangles in this quilt.

funny how some tops can just linger and linger for lack of those last two seams! this sure turned out great.

That's a really neat looking quilt. Wow, lots of triangles. I agree about the last few seams always "seem" to be the hardest to do. I find the larger my quilt gets the more my interest declines.

I'm working o a zillion-triangle project for one of my sons ... a few each day.

Wow, Lizzy--almost 2600 triangles! No wonder it kept getting pushed back for other projects. It is lovely though.

Phew - that's a lot of triangles. Great use of value and I bet it feels REAL good to get the top finished :)

Very nice top. And a wonderful way to use up scraps. I didn't realize that others had the same "problem" as I did......the last few seams being the hardest to do. I thought that was just one of MY oddities!

Looks wonderful - what a great way to use up a bunch of odd ball scraps.
