I've long admired people who can accept the fact that some projects are just meant to be long-term projects and enjoy working on them a little at a time, over a long course of time ... projects that are more about the journey than about getting something done.
A great example of this is Anina's Dear Baby Jane project, which I love to follow every step of the way (but haven't joined, because of all of those miniscule pieces and freezer paper and paper piecing and applique and other crazy things that I'm just not ready to mess with yet).
But when I saw that Sarah and Amanda Jean were both starting to work on a long-term project and had set up a Flickr group to encourage others to do the same, I was all in. The group is called Tokyo's Triangles because the project is based on an amazing quilt that was featured at the Tokyo International Quilt Festival. The quilt is made up entirely of flying geese, but some of them are tall & skinny while others are short & fat, resulting in a beautiful forest-like effect.
Inspiration quilt can be seen here. The group can be found here. Come join us!
Here are my first 48 triangles. I used the tutorial that Amanda Jean recommended and was truly surprised at how quickly I was able to make so many pieces.
All of the fabrics you see here are scraps from other projects that either my wife or I completed. I've been busy going through all of our old fabrics and cutting them into 5.25" squares for this project. I've decided that I won't buy a single fabric for this (except for the white), and it will be the ultimate stashbuster.
