Sew Happy Friday – A Poll with A Giveaway and A Tutorial for The Falling Triangles Quilt


The Poll and Giveaway

My sister-in-law is doing a poll on handmade gifts for her Etsy shop.  Please help her out by taking it.  I think you have to be a Facebook member to do so.  If you take the poll you will automatically be entered to win a free handmade gift in her drawing which she plans to do December 11 (USA time).  Here’s the link to the poll: Handmade – Your Opinion!

There is a “button” on the right hand side of my blog which will take you to their Etsy shop.  She has added a lot of new items recently – all patterns.  So take a look if you’re interested. :-)  I could put the link here, but I want you to remember that you can enter the shop any time through the main page here at my blog. ;-)


The Tutorial

After you get done with the poll, please come back and watch this tutorial for The Falling Triangles Quilt by Jenni and MSQC (Missouri Star Quilt Co.).  This is not a terribly complicated pattern, but it will make a huge quilt top fairly easily.  Winter is a good time of year to work on a bigger sewing project.


  1. Thank you, Mary. :)
    What an interesting quilt - I don't think I've ever seen one like that before! It looks super easy to make, too - I'd really like to make a few quilts sometime when I'm not busy (whenever that might be!!).

    1. You're welcome, Clara. :-)
      That quilt does look easy. A smaller version would go quite quickly! Some of these days I hope to actually get up the patterns for some of my own ideas - both ones I've tried already and ones I haven't made up yet. :-)
