Triangle Frenzy Blog Pop (Hop)!

Triangle Frenzy Swirl Blog Pop

It's a Blog Pop (Hop)!

Hello! Welcome to my blog. Nice of you to drop in!

This is day three of the Pop-Up Blog Hop, Blog Hop Pop, Blog Pop, Pop Hop...
If you do not know by now what a Pop-Up is, please go to Jo's website here.

As soon as I saw the first Pop-Up, I knew I had to make one.
As soon as I saw the larger sizes of Pop-Ups, I knew I had to make MORE!

Making a Pop-Up with the Triangle Frenzy Swirl pattern is very easy, because the design is scalable! I have made Swirls from as large as a bed quilt to as small as a tiny Swirl that was only 2” tall for my name tag holder. It’s a fun and easy way to make your Pop-Up POP even more!

We use our Pop-Ups to hold our patterns and small notions. If you like to organize your small pieces of fabric by color like we do, you could make color-coordinating Pop-Ups for each of your color families! (I've long since outgrown that use.) It’s also a perfect holder for notions such as pencils, rulers, and wonder clips. Do you have small projects that you’re working on? Keep track of supplies for your short term projects by containing them all in a Pop-Up!

New this year, Triangle Frenzy® LLC (also known as Artistically Engineered Designs) is focusing on delving into the world of vending at various festivals. We’re looking to put some faces behind the names of our many customers! We also have a new pattern, the Triangle Frenzy Whirlwind, that we are showing off. The Whirlwind is our answer to those that want more control over their fabric combinations, as the gradient of the fabrics can be hand selected, rather than being stuck with the scale and color of a specific border print. We will also be putting together fabric kits for those who have trouble with fabric selection or just want to get down to the fun sewing part!

You can find our Triangle Frenzy patterns at your local quilt shop, or if you don’t have a quilt shop near you, you may find them on our website. For more Pop-Up hopping, visit these blogs:

Time flies

Time flies when you're havin' fun. 
Or if you're not paying attention. 
Or if you have lots to do. 
Or because at our current level of knowledge, time is a constant, so quit complaining.

My busy brain has me wandering around some days starting something, moving to something else, then never actually completing things.

Meditation has been suggested to calm the active brain. But regular meditation doesn't work. for me. 
Then when someone suggested knitting or doing something repetitive with my hands, I realized that was the key.
Most people with Attention Deficit disorder have very active brains. Fidgeting uses a bit of brain bandwidth. 
If knitting is like meditation, then chain piecing or strip sewing is my meditation!!!
Then I realized I haven't meditated enough. Not enough sewing. 
I gotta go sew something.
Frenzily yours,
