I completed my first Equilateral Triangle quilt on Valentines day - the Fox & Friends quilt.
|Fox & Friends by me!|
I wrote tutorials for cutting and piecing equilateral triangles.
You can find the tutorial for cutting the triangles here.
And the tutorial for piecing triangles here.
Linda bought my Fox & Friends quilt pattern and shared these photos with me!
|Linda's Fox & Friends quilt!|
I love the dark blue flannel backing she chose.
And that polka dot binding is adorable!

For this quilt along, I have decided on the following layout for my triangles.
There are 12 rows of 17 pieces each.
And I am leaving the sides, as is.........
|Planned Layout - 39" x 45"|
This will result in a 39" x 45" quilt using 204 triangles.
Which are all cut out, stacked and ready to piece!

I'm doing the quilt along too! I see you've used your accuquilt (or something similar) to cut your fabric. I have to do mine by hand, so it's taking me a bit longer to cut (200 more to go). Are you planning any foxes, or butterflies or the like in this one?ReplyDelete
AGH! SOOO cute!! Love it! And I signed up for the TQAL too!! :)ReplyDelete
That's so cool! Linda did a most excellent job!!ReplyDelete
Loving the colors Lorna! It will be so fun. And how awesome is that quilt from your pattern. You designed a beautiful one!ReplyDelete
It is such a clever idea to have seen in your quilt Fox and Friends. I'd love to see what you create for the TQA!!ReplyDelete
This is so much fun...seeing you go from a pic of fabric to the triangles, etc. Exciting!ReplyDelete
