Quiltathlon

I decided to join into this quiltathlon for at least part of this weekend. I only heard about it last night and I DO have some other things that I need to do this weekend, but it sounded like fun to join in, so here I am.

I decided to continue to work on this quilt this weekend. I got it all out and ironed it and put it up on the wall last night. I cut out the white blocks to go between the nine patch blocks last night only to realize that I either didn't buy enough white to do the side triangles for the on point setting, or I cut something wrong, as in too many of the white blocks. I ran out of room on the wall for the whole quilt, so I'm not sure yet if I have too many white blocks yet. We shall see. The blocks are finished 6 inch blocks, so the white squares are 6.5 inches. Anyone know if I can cut them in half diagonally to use for side triangles for an on point setting? Grrr... might have to make a run to the fabric store before it's all over this weekend!

I think they would be too small if you just cut them in half. Why not try a different color for the side setting triangles? I have seen it on a few quilts and it looks quite effective. Maybe a pale blue and then bind with the same color? Have fun working on your quilt today!!
