Block 9 - Year of Half Square Triangles and a Giveaway!

 Hello! Welcome to week 9 of the Year of Scrappy Triangles! This week I used Gingham Girl scraps, provided by Amy Smart of a Diary of a Quilter, for my foundation paper pieced blocks. I had such fun playing with these fabrics! Those cute florals and strawberries remind me of fabrics from my childhood. (sigh..)

I was also really impressed with how well they play with the other fabrics. They look awesome with the other scrappy triangles I have made. They were meant to be together! (You can go to this page to find links for the other block's free foundation patterns shown here.)

I also used Gingham Girls to make more low-volume scrappy blocks. So, so cute!

 Here they are with some of the other low-volume Scrappy Triangles I have made. A match made in heaven. :) To make this week's block, click below to download the pattern.

Now for the giveaway! I would love to see all the blocks you have made and give you a bit of incentive to catch up. It's not even too late to start from scratch! The blocks go together quickly, and are so fun to make, that it would be fairly simple to make them in an afternoon. 

To be entered to win this fat quarter bundle of fabric, post a picture of your 9 Scrappy Triangle blocks on Instagram. Tag me @sewnbyleila and use the hashtags #yearofscrappytriangles and #yearoscrappytrianglesgiveaway. Not on Instagram? Post a picture of your 9 blocks on my Facebook page to be entered. I can't wait to see what you have made!

The Giveaway will be open through Tuesday, Dec 12th.
