FWQAL (13) Buzzard's Roost

it is my sincere hope that I will be able to handle triangles by the end of the farmer's wife quilt-along. these are better than the first, but still not as nice as I'd like them to be.

I think I've figured out how to put the quilt top together at the end without being too stymied by the squares ranging from 6 1/4" to 6 1/2". I probably won't sash, but will border each block in the unifying fabric (white?) and then put together that way. won't really correct triangle points disappearing, but I think it will answer the block size variance issue.

maybe a sampler quilt shouldn't be perfect. the reason I wanted to do a sampler was to learn new piecing skills, so it only makes sense that some of the blocks aren't going to be my best blocks ever. I'll just hide it when company comes over! ;-)
