Triangles Galore for Lisa

This was a fun block to make!  I really like the precision of paper-piecing and the way the finished block looks.  I'm sure it's going to be an amazing quilt.  It seems like I'm really on top of things by getting this done so quickly, but I was looking for some sewing distraction while my husband (a volunteer firefighter) was called away to a grass/brush fire threatening a residence...and it's 102* outside today.  It's been so hot, and the drought has caused several communities to cancel their fireworks displays and ban fireworks sales for fear of fire. 

I finally got these blocks pieced together yesterday. My students pieced the log cabin blocks during exploratory class last fall. Setting them was no simple task since none were the same size or square. I think it will be raffled at the school carnival this fall. I'm sure there are parents that will want it since their kids had a hand in making it. I can't wait to see it all quilted. I'm thinking that a scrappy, colorful binding would look great.
Here's the back - Students will sign their names in the white around the block. I hope it doesn't look terrible that I ran out of the lighter gray.


  1. Tremendous! Love my block. And your class quilt is wonderful too! You will raise a ton of money at auction with that little beauty. Great job!

  2. It's so much fun to see the triangles galore blocks come together! Your color choices are fabulous! Zing!!!!
    School quilt it great!

  3. The triangle block and the quilt top both look amazing! Love the combination of bright colors and grey.
