And add a plethora of plaids.........

So the foundation pieced triangles worked okay - in some respects maybe I should have stuck to lights and darks on the same side of each 1" square - but I also like the total randomness of it, plus I'd stitched several seams before I even considered it so it stays like this.
I shall do some more stitchery in the long panels of cream and the tiny little cream corner squares. I might change colour and do this set in variegated blue or green - we'll see.
Next round QST's/hourglass units but as it's not an even measurement (17 and a bit inches) to divide into round numbers I'll put in some cream bits to stitchery on too.
This is definitely testing my piecing skills but still coming out in the Bebbington medallion style.

nice alphabet, Anne - looks a lot like my cross-stitch one I'm working on, funny enough.

Your little plaid triangles are VERY effective. I like that they're mixed light and dark, not arranged in order. What are you stitching on the borders?

Hi Anne, I'm loving your stitcheries. Your border treatment is just perfect. I've been thinking about the girls and wondering how their quilts are coming along. Keep stitching and the bleary winter days will pass quickly enough.
