This quilt would have been finished on Tuesday, but life (ie: two cases of bronchitis and one sever case of croup) got in the way. Here it is now, ready to ship to a new home.
Title: Equilateral Triangle Quilt in Pinks and Grays
Dimensions: 53″ x 61″ It is perfect for a baby or toddler. I think that this would also be an amazing lap blanket for a tween or teen.
The Process: I had a half yard of each of the 9 fabrics. I cut each half yard into (2) 9″ strips. You can use this as a visual guide on how to cut equilateral triangles if you are interested in trying this yourself. I then laid them out on my design wall. When I was happy with the layout, I chain pieced it. For the backing, I used a taupe and cream pinstripe fabric and put a bright offset hexagon for a bit of pop.
Quilting: Quilting lines followed the diagonal lines created by the triangles. I quilted about 1/4″ on either side of the seam.
What Needs to be Done: It needs to be purchased! HA! Interested? You can find it here! It then needs to be stuck in a box to ship it to its forever home!
For Next Time: I will make this in “boy” colors next. As I was posting my progress photos I saw a lot of “If only I had a girl!” in the comments.
So, what colors should I use for the “boy” version? Maybe a range of sea-greens? Some jewel-toned blues? Maybe gray and yellow?
