I started quilting the random triangles quilt last night. It turns out that I'm not very good at straight lines. I also didn't like the washable fabric pencil that I had...it was too hard to see. I did go with a variegated thread, although that might be hard to tell from the pictures.
So my question is, how small should the biggest non-quilted piece be? My guess that my 5"x5" is too big. Then comes my next question...should I just add more lines to make smaller rectangles or should I go from point to point of the rectangles to make triangles? I was originally going to do point to point because that would make some nice random triangles, but then I realized that the hypotenuses (hypotenui??) would be going along different lines that the top triangles and it seems like that would be distracting.
I also managed to fold over a little piece of the backing and quilt it. Luckily it was just a tiny corner so I didn't have to remove the entire seam.
I just linked up with Freshly Pieced if you want to see some other fun quilts and works in progress!
