Triangle Island

Yes, I know it's been awhile since I posted, but, well, let's just say you haven't missed much. Frost killed my seed beans, the boys have been in full swing, etc., and I've gotten myself into another project. Yes, I'm still working on Christmas presents, but I needed the side trip to Triangle Island.

See, our Benevolent Despot at Treadle On did a "Rectangle Island" mystery quilt back in Feb-March. Since it was a blast with appearances by the Evil Twin (not the one that looks like Tom Selleck, the other one) and clues to hunt down on the site, when "Triangle Island" was proposed, I jumped right on ship. I needed something to think about besides the holidays coming up, our first round with Grandma gone. Little did I know I was going to get marooned on the Isle and the cruise company would go bankrupt. Full story here:

To make a long story short, I finished Row 1 tonight. Well, OK, there's that little matter of squaring the row up, which I can't do until the Corner is open on Monday and I get fabric. It's as done as it will be until then, so here's what it looks like:

I don't think it looks too bad, but the true test will be what happens when I join the rows........

For those of you wondering, I obsessed over the color placement until I listened to Mr. C. and did the olde "52 card pick up in a paper bag". My only rule is that no color repeats next to each other.

And so I'm off to work on Row 2......... assuming I can find a plug for my boom box so I can jam to Nickelback (there you go, now I'm dated.....)
