When I made my July One Monthly Goal I posed the question: How many triangles does it take to make a quilt? I've done a little math and now know the answer for my quilt is 3256. That is 44 rows of 74 triangles and a quilt that will measure 84 x 88. I started making the triangle units back in November 2016 as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project to use 2.5 inch scraps and made them throughout 2016 and 2017 following a tutorial on Molly Flanders blog.
I quit making those little units when I thought I had enough for a quilt. I had no idea how many units I had. I hadn't counted as I went along. Anyway...my July OMG was to sew those triangle units into rows that consisted of 36 triangle units and empty the box.
My goals was accomplished. I now have an empty box. I actually filled it back up again after I emptied it and then emptied it again.
After I sewed the box of units together I only had 25 rows and I wanted 44. So I cut and made more triangle units from the 2.5 inch scrap bin and scrap chunks I cut into 2.5 inch pieces.
So now I have 44 rows and more than completed my July OMG so time to link up to:
And now I've been sewing those rows together so maybe in August I'll have a completed top. But it's pretty time consuming matching and pinning all those triangle points. 12 rows sewn together only 32 more to go!
