Online Quilt Trunk Show and Equilateral Triangle Quilt Calculator

Good morning!  I just wanted to drop in quickly to highlight two things going on in blog-land that have me very excited...

1. Online Quilt Truck Show @ Whims and Fancies

Soma who blogs over at Whims and Fancies is hosting an online quilt truck show called "Trunk Full of Quilts". The trunk show link party will start on November 10th and end on November 18th.

All you have to do is write a blog post including photos and a little description of each of your favorite quilted projects (they do not have to be from 2015, but they must be finished projects). Then visit Soma's page and link up.

There is no judging, but tons of participation prizes from Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs (that's me!!), Lorna from Sew Fresh Quilts and Beth from Cooking Up Quilt, Aurifil Threads, Craftsy and Fat Quarter Shop.

It is no secret that I love link parties and this one is going to be a ton of fun and full of wonderful quilty eye candy!

2. Equilateral Triangle Quilt Calculator

Yvonne who blogs over at Quilting Jetgirl, just posted one of the most awesome tools I have found on the quilting blog world ... a tool that calculates the dimensions of finished triangle quilts for you. No need for you to dust off the geometry books from high school and college because Yvonne has done all of the hard math for you.

Simply enter in the Height of Strip (inches), Number Across (triangles in each row), and Number Down (number of rows) and the tool will calculate the quilt top's dimensions.  

Click here to go check it out.  Thank you so much Yvonne for posting this super useful tool!!


  1. I'm dusting off my quilts now for the trunk show. Can't wait! Thanks for the triangle calculator link. I am about to make one of those and this will be very handy!

  2. Thanks for the heads up about the trunk show, that sounds like fun so I'll be sure to check it out!

  3. The Trunk Show sounds like it will be a lot of fun. I will have to find specific posts and pictures and then head over and link up. I follow Yvonne by email and always appreciate the information that she shares. Today it is about spreadsheets, always learn something from her. Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful creative day!

  4. Definitely fun and useful stuff.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment!
