Triangle Quilt Along Finale

TriangleButton800

It's time to link up those finished triangle quilts HERE at The Sassy Quilter.  I really enjoyed this quilt along - got to play with some new fabric, finally use a ruler that has been sitting, and just the right push to make a triangle quilt.


Since I finished quilting this, we have had a monsoon season - no outside photos and I want to be sure to get this linked up in time.   I used a FQ bundle of a  Free Spirit line - 'London' - for the triangles.  


I went 2 rows less than the chart offered and used a plain final border of Kona White to finish it off.  The Binding is an RJR Thimbleberries 'Old World Comforts'.  Batt is Hobbs 100% cotton


Backing is an extra wide  from Connecting Threads - "Fiesta" - and thread used is a CT in white (front and back).  Simple stitch in the ditch followed by echoing the diamonds.   Finished size is 56" x 68"

Please be sure to visit all the other link ups  HERE at The Sassy Quilter.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

Belinda said...

That looks really cool! I have to say that I've always been afraid I would get tired of doing the same design over and over in a quilt. But these triangles look really great and make me rethink that. :)

Joanna said...

Beautiful. The fabric looks nice in that simple design.

Oh how fun and beautiful Sharon!!! I love those fabrics in triangle blocks, especially the bold effect of the stripes! Great finish :) I've been hankering to do a triangle quilt, but it is going to have to wait until a few things are done and out of the way.
