I used my Tri Recs ruler again to make two sizes of triangles. The larger ones came together nicely but those teeny ones? Let's just say there were three rows planned.
I do love how the finished design shook out, though. I was really inspired by Mary Molly Flanders' triangle quilt here and this is my more minimalist version of it. Requisite upview here.
Quilted with Aurifil 50 wt thread in a fabulous medium grey. I did some straight line quilting, and echoed the triangles in a few rows. I really quite like it.
And a shot of the hilariously hideous fabric I used on the back. Seriously. What was I thinking? Actually, I'll tell you what I was thinking - it's a sweet gender neutral print for backing a baby quilt. Nailed it, amirite?!
Bonus: this is a Q3 FAL finish! Yay!
Love it.. its fabulous and inspiring to get mine cut out. I have no machine this week so cleaning the studio but I could cut alot of fabric. its great to see all the quilting.ReplyDelete
So cute but I understand why the bottom row plan changed. Sometimes working with tiny bits is so hard.ReplyDelete
This is wonderful. I want to do some triangles, I will take this as advice to stick to larger ones.ReplyDelete
I love how you quilted this! Such a great quilt! (And I like it more than your inspiration quilt!)ReplyDelete
Your challenge quilt is gorgeous! Love the quilting...ReplyDelete
The backing made me laugh out loud. :-)
Congrats on the finishes!ReplyDelete
