After finishing up the top for Roan’s birthday quilt with isosceles triangles, I’m excited to announce that equilaterals are a cinch in comparison! No finicky seams to line up, and there were no problems sewing on the bias. I thought I wouldn’t like the shape as much as the isosceles, but they are cute!
The mix of double gauze, flannel, linen and quilting weight fabrics effortlessly came together. This is good news since I will be teaching this quilt at the Quilting Loft on Thursday, August 9th from 6-9pm.
There certainly are some goodies from my stash in this quilt. I was happy to see the last of the Lotus Wallflower find a perfect home, as well as some Anna Maria Horner flannel and Chocolate Lollipop. I love the Heather Ross in here, especially the Purple Moons and the Crimson Unicorns. Those I nabbed from scrap packs at Pink Chalk Fabrics. There is a touch of Erin McMorris and Kei Dots in there as well.
At Island Quilter the other night, I found some of the Anna Maria Horner Chocolate Lollipop I had used in the quilt top. Anja has it in all the colors, along with most of the line, but this was my favorite and will go on the back. Can you believe it isn’t Alexander Henry or flannel? I’m really breaking out of my box.
Since I have triangle fever, I started cutting scraps for another triangle quilt last night.
But after coming up with this diamond shape using value I’m off to grab a diamond-shaped template. I’m addicted to this simple shape, and still can’t wait to make this quilt with my Mendocino and another with my Christmas-themed fabrics.
There also has been talk of a star-themed Quilt-A-Long among the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild, so I’ve been pinning to my new Star Pin Board. So many quilts, so little time. Happy Sunday!
