Friendship Triangle Exchange

Today I have been working on my half square triangle squares for a friendship triangle exchange with some other quilters in my area. I only had 9 "cinnamon sticks" to sew and cut so it didn't take me long.

I am doing the Tree of Life quilt but I am adding an extra 2 rows of trees so that it will be square. In all, I need 234 squares for this quilt.

I am already thinking about making that quilt on the cover as well. I love how graphic it is.

These were really easy to do and fast. Each sheet of triangle exchange paper took less than 5 minutes to sew. (Yes, I actually timed it...4 minutes and 36 seconds! )

Cutting them apart took a bit longer but this was still a fast process.

All that's left now is to wait for the exchange!

Happy Stitching!


  1. Sounds like a fun exchange and the Tree of Life Quilt sounds wonderful!

  2. The triangle paper makes fast work of the hst!! What a fun exchange!!
