Block 38, Giveaway Winner, and New Tiny Piecing Collection!

Before we get to this week's block, let's draw a winner from all of the people who finished the first 36 quilt blocks in the Year of Scrappy Triangles.
And the winner is Penny! (@Imatopper) 
Congrats! I'll get your bundle of fabrics in the mail.

Now on to this week's block. I'm not going to lie. I think I could have done better with my fabric choices. There is a cute little framed area that is great for putting a fussy cut motif, but somehow....

That's ok. Not every block needs to be my favorite and it will look just fine mixed in with the others. Here's the download, but keep reading, because I've got some great news!

Edited: The Tiny Piecing Collection is now Available!
You can find all the patterns in my Etsy Shop!

A few months ago, I started playing around with the idea of making tiny Scrappy Triangles. How small could I make them?

I drafted 16 tiny 1" Scrappy Triangles, then drafted some more in 2" and 3". Then came the 1" and 2" Scrappy Strips. I'm calling this set of patterns The Tiny Piecing Collection and they are going to be available Thursday (6/28)! Let me give you a sneak peek at this new collection!

Here are some of the 2" Scrappy Triangles. There are templates for 18 triangles in this set and I think they are the cutest thing ever. The great thing about these triangles is that you can use your smallest scraps to make them.

The Scrappy Strips are simply a row of Scrappy Triangles sewn together as one unit. Sewing them this way speeds the piecing and reduces bulk from seam allowances. In addition to strips of Scrappy Triangles, there are also striped and abstract strips in each Scrappy Strip set.

Plus, each set of templates comes with a pattern for a bonus quilt block or other small project. Here is the quilt block made with the 2" Scrappy Strips.

I always think it is fun to see behind the scenes shots, so here is a picture of my photo shoot set up. Yup, that is my ancient cutting board being used as a background for the 3" Scrappy Triangles on my deck. That's how the pros do it. ;)

The Tiny Piecing Collection with be available Thursday! (6/28) You will be able to find the patterns in my Etsy Shop.  They are instant pdf downloads, so you will be able to get started right away!

I am going to have the whole collection on sale the first week, plus my Newsletter Friends are going to get a coupon code that they can use ON TOP of the sale price. Sweet! It's not to late to sign up. Just click here and you'll get the bonus coupon code in your email.

I've really appreciated your interest and support of the Year of Scrappy Triangles, and I can't wait to share this new collection with you!
