Finally, a finish! From Point A to Point B has binding AND faux piped binding.
I know, I know, ANOTHER quilt with triangles, really?
I’ve been spinning my wheels on class samples and finally got one done for my Improvisational Elongated Triangles Class. I dove into the fourth season of Parks and Recreation to get the binding on today. I was so thrilled to sit on my ass at home and do nothing but sew until I taught at night. Even filthy, home is awesome.
Krista did the quilting on this one for our trade. We thought something simple that could be accomplished on the home machine would do. It’s a bit difficult to pick up with my amateur photography skills, but the thread is light green.
Each triangle is double outlined on this one.
The orange and green inspiration came from a lady leaving my line when I was cashiering one day. I loved her bold green skirt with her orange shirt. It stuck and the neutrals mixed in seemed so fresh. Krista used a poly/cotton batting, so even with this amount of quilting it remains supple.
Stayed tuned to MORE of these triangles, I had a load of leftovers that didn’t make it in and some new ideas brewing.
For now this quilt is hanging at the Quilting Loft in Ballard as a class sample and then it will move onto Island Quilter to become part of Krista’s exhibit in October. I even threw some Kaffe Fasset fabrics in there since he will be at Island Quilter in October for a lecture and a workshop while the quilt is hanging. It’s up in the air, but I’m hoping to make it to both events!
