33 technicolor triangles.

8.07.2012

I finished my triangle quilt this weekend!  I think this is my favorite quilt that I've made so far.
Tons of bright colors, alternating with black and white prints make the quilt colorful and fun but with places for your eyes to rest.  The quilt was inspired by this awesome pillow that Jeni made.
 I quilted on both sides of each seam, which took forever but was well worth the end result.
 Bound in a black and white pindot to tie in with the black and white fabrics throughout the quilt.
The back is really fun too!  Another row of triangles, arranged this time in color order.  My favorite Echo print filling up the rest of the back.
 It coordinates really well with the front and I love the pop of that pinkish purple!
The quilt is a large lap size, at about 62 x 80".
It's head out to it's new home now, I'm going to miss it!
I think I need to make another one just for me at some point.  I'm going to need to go shopping for more black and white prints before that happens though, between this quilt and the new one I started yesterday, I'm almost out!

  4. this is so lovely!! i am really crazy for these triangles, and need to get started on a triangle quilt i've got planned with some good folks.

    yesterday i tried some straight line quilting with my free motion foot - on a whim, wondering how it would look. i'm not too happy about it, because i got a little too wonky in places, and i had some puckers.

    we have the same machine, so can i ask for some tips on straight line quilting with your horizon? do you use the dual feed foot? do you adjust the pressure on your presser foot? how do you baste? and do you alternate directions? i've never been successful with straight line quilting, but i'd love to learn how to do it right!! your lines here look great!

    here's what i mean: http://www.flickr.com/photos/15798936@N00/7729319452/in/photostream

  19. It's breathtaking! love it! Were you planning on making up kits with extra triangles or are you using them for something else in the end?
    Can you tell me what ruler you used to make your triangles? and how big you made yours? I want to get a ruler but I feel a bit lost about which to buy... thanks
