One of the things I am beginning to comprehend a little more now that we live in the Phoenix Metropolitan area, is the vast size and population.
Covering over 9,000 square miles, Phoenix Metro is larger in size than 17 of our states in the U.S.
I find it hard to comprehend a population of 5 million people, especially when I moved from Utah with 2.8 million for the entire state.
Talk about Urban Sprawl.
One of the up sides is that a lot of great quilt companies and people live within the Metro.
Recently Sylvia Hirsch, who lives locally and is the owner of Triangles on a Roll, presented a trunk show for our guild.
I have used and loved their product for years.
I took so many pictures of that I will show her trunk show in 3 separate posts.
Sylvia and her husband have owned Triangles on a Roll since 2000, and have traveled extensively selling their product.
Don't you love the quilt she used as her table topper?
Triangles on a Roll come in 50 foot tubes, and are offered in a wide variety of sizes.
They are perfect for making half square triangles that come out exact.
The paper foundation keeps the bias edges from stretching or pulling.
When you open the tube you unroll a continuous sheets of paper.
Cut off the amount you would like to use.
Layer 2 pieced of fabric right sides together and pin the paper on top.
Sew on the dotted lines, and cut on the solid.
Remove the paper, open up, and iron flat.
You now have a perfectly sized half square triangle.
Triangles on a Roll are available in most quilt shops.
I found them for a good price on Amazon.com HERE
Amazon even had two of their pattern books that are hard to find.
There are so many quilts that can be made with half square triangles.
This is a perfect one to use up scraps.
I remember Sylvia saying it was a pattern offered through a Fons and Porter magazine.
I especially love the border on
