I’ve made multiple triangle quilts this year, and this final one is my favorite. It all started when I saw this book:
The book presents variations on 3 different types of triangles (equilateral, right, isoceles), with multiple options for each type. You know I don’t like to make the same block twice, so the variety of these triangle blocks seemed perfect! (The cover states there are 70 different blocks!)
I chose the equilateral triangles and a limited color palette. And of course I changed some of her patterns and improvised a few new ones. That said, her instructions were excellent. (You may take excellent instructions for granted when you’ve paid for a book, but don’t. Enough said.)
The quilting was done by my friend Andrea Walker. Andrea does beautiful custom quilting, but she is understanding when I want edge-to-edge quilting instead (because I want the quilt to be about my design rather than her quilting).
- Name: Triangle Variations (Hmmm…boring. If you have a more creative idea please let me know.)
- Finished size:57″ x 66″
- Source: Inspired by Rebecca Bryan’s book Modern Triangle Quilts, and most of the blocks are from that book. (Book available here.)
- Quilted by: Andrea Walker. (You can see her website by clicking on her name.)
This quilt went together well (due to the excellent instructions) and it is unique even though most of the blocks came from patterns. Try it!
