"I Spy A Triangle" Quilt

"I Spy A Triangle"

This is what I am calling this new quilt.

I am joining in this quilty fun ...

The Sassy Quilter

Here is the stack of fabrics I pulled for this quilt.
The stripe on the bottom is my tentative plan for binding fabric.

This quilty fun is being hosted by Paula @ The Sassy Quilter
and she has lots of tips and tricks.

One of them is to use lots of Best Press to help control the stretch of the bias cuts.

So I sprayed and pressed, 

Here are my stacks of triangles.

One of them was an impulse addition while I was cutting 
and I do not think it will make it into this quilt.

Can you tell which one? 

Hint:  It is not in the stack above.

It looks out of place with the other fabrics in this photo, 
but it actually does not look so out of place on my table.
Sometimes I like to study the photos as it gives me a chance to step back 
and give me a new perspective.

I am linking up today with all the pretty quilts in progress in

Thanks, Paula!

Update with a sunny morning photo of my fabrics 
... with the odd fabric out ... 

I am enjoying seeing all the pictures of the quilts in progress in the 

Lots of pretty eye candy!

Have a happy quilty weekend!

Love your triangles :) I'm thinking third row, first one on right. . . but only cuz I cheated - I went back and looked at your stack of fabric :) I think you should try it in the layout and then take a picture before taking it out completely. I like it!

You have such a lovely blog. I love it.
I do agree, the quilt will be much better without the intruder. I mean the colour sure looks right but something is wrong. It looks like it will be a very interesting I spy quilt.
