Triangles


It took a scary day, medically speaking, to push me to finish The Evil Genius' quilt. It sat on my design wall for well over a month. Frankly, it is so pretty I was content to look at all the triangles and not sew them together. But then my girl needed a pick me up so I finished the top. 

Like her first quilt she picked all the fabrics and layout for this quilt. I will admit to spending a few days strongly suggesting that using red on those edge triangles would not make the quilt look better. I finally had to cut a few options and have her compare. This is the fabric she chose for the backing and I think it works well here (My preference was for a pale grey or white.) She definitely has a future as a quilter.



It finishes out at a twin. Because she wanted a quilt big enough for when she gets her own bed. (My girls share a bed.) With no plans to actually buy new beds that means I have tonnes of time to get it done, right?

How fun! I have a triangle quilt I need to post today.

I hope the medical scare is all over. That is a lovely quilt, and surely can be added to her side of the shared bed once it is done or used on the sofa?

It's fun to see your daughter's preferences become a quilt!

I am experimenting with triangles myself, currently. Never used them before, except for hst. Do you have a trick to cutting them out faster? I'm just doing them one at a time with a template out of scraps... taking forever.
