Triangles up the wahzoo

My friend Amber had the brilliant idea to start a modern quilting bee with some local girls here in Portland.  She asked if I wanted to join and I immediately said, YES!  The name of the bee is PDX Bee.  Amber started us out this month.  She is making a solids quilt with all triangles.  We were just asked to make an 18 1/2″ square and use the fabrics she gave us.  She also requested the flying geese type of triangle with all of them facing up.  I loved making this block!  I used Faith’s flying geese paper piecing template for the little ones and the larger one from Quilter’s Cache.  

I decided to use white space and liked the idea of descending triangles with one large one at the top.  I am starting to like paper piecing a lot!  It’s really fun to learn a new skill.

Fabrics are all Kona by Robert Kaufman.  I can’t wait to see all the other blocks and how it comes together!  My month is next month and I am ready to roll!  So excited!

    I love this!!! I got a mini ruler set that is used to make flying geese for Christmas. This is something even I could make.
