2013 RSC, June, Yellow, Week 5

After five weeks of playing with yellow scraps, I'm ready to play with another color. Earlier this week I used a coupon to buy a new tool, a 60 degrees Pyramids ruler. Several people on the internet are making quilts with 60 degree units and I though I might make one. I cut four 6.5" 60 degree pyramids from scrap typing paper and sewed skinny strips and crumbs onto the paper. Then I trimmed them to the size of the paper. This is a project I'll carry over into next year. I can also imagine a row of scrappy, colorful pyramids sewed into the backing of a quilt.
Three knitted dishcloths made it into the picture. I was able to knit two pink ones and still have a little yarn left from a ball of Peaches & Creme Bright Pink cotton yarn I bought at Walmart for $1.87. The dishcloth in the top row is from a ball of Sugar'n Cream Batik cotton yarn.
To see what others made with their yellow scraps this week, go here Saturday morning.

Good for you in finding a way to use those skinnies - and adding to your tools is good too.

How pretty your triangles are! That will really make an interesting project on down the line. And your dishcloths are so pretty! Wish I would magically know how to knit. ;)

Love the 60 degree triangles. They could also be used on a boarder around other rainbow blocks.

Love your idea for the 60 degree diamonds. A pretty new twist on strings.
