Triangle QAL

TriangleButton800

I have been participating in The Sassy Quilter 's Triangle Quilt Along.  First picking out fabric, cutting all those triangles, stitching rows, and now putting it all together.


I admit that I went right from cutting to putting it all together.  I used the line 'London' @ Free Spirit.  And I didn't lay it out - I know, brave.  I just stacked my blues and my pinks seperate and with each row, flipped 2 blues under and 4 pinks under their respective piles and just kept going.  I love the results.  Since this photo I have trimmed the edges.  Nah, not going to fight those sides with binding on this one.  We have two weeks to quilt/finish, but this one is hitting the machine as soon as the 'Paper Dolls' quilt is done.

If you have never tried a triangle quilt - don't be afraid of them - they really do work up quite easy and fast.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  7. It's so pretty, I really like the stripes scattered through it. I keep thinking about triangle quilts, but the thought of sewing them together and keeping it all straight has stopped me so far, maybe it's time.

  9. This is really nice! I think you're brave to "just sew it" because I could never do that.

  10. Beautiful! That is brave but what it tells me is that my obsession with arranging and rearranging and arranging and rearranging (and on and on) might be a little overboard! This is going to be an awesome quilt! I gotta get to sewing my rows together today :)

    I loved your brave technique to randomly pick the different colors of triangle. It totally worked.
