During these last three weeks, as I was aimlessly wandering through pinterest and doing some wishful thinking for the time to do some fun projects, I stumbled upon some beautiful triangle quilts. My sewing board is packed with things I will probably never do (isn't most of pinterest?) but I had already been looking for a kind of scrap-busting project and this just may be it.

The whites were three different fabrics I pulled from Wal-Mart. Easy, cheap, and they have a little pattern to them as well! I like that the patterns are subtle enough to read "white" from a distance and not "print," but it's a nice little surprise when you get up close.

So here is the triangle collection I ended up with: a whole gang of mismatched misfits, but I think they work!
At first I laid them out with the white triangles in between the others. It was cute, but not quite what I was looking for.
So I opted for the zig-zag approach instead! And I couldn't help but separate my colors. At the end of the project, I will have a baby-sized quilt with one warm zig and one cold zag.
I'm pretty pumped about it. Sewing started yesterday and continues on today! And hopefully bit by bit throughout the week until I can consider these scraps busted.
