Triangle of the Week

This is "BR2, Leigh's Woods", an intermediate-level block that I chose to paper piece. These triangles are definitely trickier to piece than the blocks, but they're doable (at least so far). Some of the members of my DJ support group recommeded that I use the DJ triangle ruler for these and they are definitely right! I borrowed one from my friend Dori to try it out and I have definitely put it on my "need to purchase soon" list. (thanks, Dori!)

I still need some practice (I see that there is at least one point that will be chopped off a bit when I sew it to the adjoining piece), but now I know what to watch out for as I cut.

This triangle is shown upside-down because it is on the bottom row.

I really like this triangle. But I think I would have gone the paper piecing route too.

I had trouble with some of the triangles and seemed to have some of them a bit uneven on the sides - but I don't think anyone will notice now when looking at the quilt unless they really look at each piece -- of which there are how many!! LOL
