More Bliss

I decided to keep moving with my original plan here. I pieced everything together into this large parallelogram.

Then I took a slice from top to bottom.

I moved the piece on the right to the left side.

Then pieced it back together. This gave me straight edges without any waste.

It also made for a long narrow crib quilt so I decided to add borders on the sides.

The greens above didn’t make the cut, but I found this old black floral in my stash that I think will work.

If all goes well, I should be able to share this finish on Friday. Have a good one!

    What a great idea to slice a parallelogram of triangles in order to make a rectangle with no waste! A triangle quilt is on my bucket list, and I just might try your method!

    Hi Katy! Well, this is a slick idea. I love how it turned out, and can’t wait to see it with those borders on. I agree, that fabric looks like it will work perfectly. ~smile~ Roseanne
