Wing Triangles

Bright sun but colder and windy today, but warm enough to prewash a few nice homespuns for the upcoming strip swaps in Nickelswap. I recently saw a great looking quilt made from homespuns in a random basket weave pattern. Still thinking about whether or not that's what I'd like to do with my large collection of homespun.

I puttered along on the 350 units for Step 5 of Orca Bay. Now I'm up to 80 done and while I'm pleased with my progress, I feel like I'd better pick up the pace to be done before Friday's next clue.

This was the second fat quarter of that silly Thanksgiving black background print that I just found so I'm using it. I think that it came from the shop at Keepsake Quilting's April sale on FQ's for $1 each if you buy 20 of them.
Here are today's and yesterday's work all together:

The red cherries on the deep black background fabric was a find. It's Mary Englebreit designed for Cranston and although Cranston is usually very thin cotton, this felt beefier and nice quality. So I bought it at Wal-Mart clearance and paid like $3.50 for the yard. I love bargains, don't you?
