Triangles top

It was a busy weekend for me and my sister.  Babysitting two young nieces/grandchildren.  They were good, but busy.  By the end of Monday evening, we were all tired.  Everyone was very happy to see the parents back home.  Everyone.  You know what I mean!  LOL

Anyway, the final applique triangles were sewn onto this top.  This top is done and I must get busy marking for machine quilting.  Just simple straight lines.  Nothing fancy.  A little girl will be moving to a big girl bed this summer and it would be nice for her to have her quilt.
Do you remember me lamenting about not buying more of that fabulous stripe fabric?  Well, on a trip to Sudbury (1-1/2 hr. drive away from me) last week, a very quick stop into the quilt store and 2 metres more were bought.  The store owner was just in the process of closing her shop to go for an appointment, but I was able to convince her to just cut my fabric and away I would go.  She kindly did and we both left happy. 
This summer will be very busy for me and I will be here, there and everywhere.  Posts will be sporadic.  Hand projects will be coming with me on my trips and there will be some progress to report on.  Cleaning up some ufo's time.

There are a LOT of forest fires north of us here in North Bay.  BUT at our cottage, the access roads just north of our road have been closed.  We are keeping a close eye on events and if the fire situation looks to be worsening, we will drive to the cottage and take out anything of sentimental value.  The rest will be covered by fire insurance.  Scary times!
 
Have a great day!

Gorgeous triangle quilt for a big girl!! Hey...sure hope your cottage is OK; these fires are just everywhere this summer!

Finding your striped fabric was a stroke of luck! The triangle quilt is just right for a grown-up bed, very modern for a modern little girl. We in Australia know all about fire - stay safe. Even precious sentimental items are not worth putting people in danger.

Your triangle quilt is marvelous. It feels almost like a Navaho rug design. It will be lovely on a big girl bed. The fire danger is unbelievable this summer. I hope your cabin remains safe.

Drawing trend lines is one of the few easy techniques that really WORK. Prices respect a trend line, or break through it resulting in a massive move. Drawing good trend lines is the MOST REWARDING skill.

The problem is, as you may have already experienced, too many false breakouts. You see trend lines everywhere, however not all trend lines should be considered. You have to distinguish between STRONG and WEAK trend lines.

One good guideline is that a strong trend line should have AT LEAST THREE touching points. Trend lines with more than four touching points are MONSTER trend lines and you should be always prepared for the massive breakout!

This sophisticated software automatically draws only the strongest trend lines and recognizes the most reliable chart patterns formed by trend lines...

Chart patterns such as "Triangles, Flags and Wedges" are price formations that will provide you with consistent profits.

Before the age of computing power, the professionals used to analyze every single chart to search for chart patterns. This kind of analysis was very time consuming, but it was worth it. Now it's time to use powerful dedicated computers that will do the job for you:

The "baby" quilts I made were all but one, large enough for a single bed ... but a bit too babyish. Now I am working on the third "big boy" quilt. I'm sure yours will be much loved. Fire season is always scary ... for mothers of fire-fighters too.
