Equilateral Triangle Quilt - Finished!

Introducing my Triangle Quilt Along baby quilt... Completely completed!



I started quilting by stitching in the ditch around the focus triangle.

Quilting Detail

Then I spiral quilted around this block, alternating between 1/4" and 3/4" spacing.

And then returned to that focus triangle to add one final outline of quilting inside the triangle.
 

Machine finished binding in blue with white polka dots.

Interested in a binding tutorial showing how I conquered those inside corners?  Click here!


Backed in a fresh flannel print, I really love how this one came together.
Working with all those bright colours has been such a pleasure.

Flannel Backing

I am so happy with this sweet quilt.  And feel it could qualify as unisex.
In spite of the pink, the overall feel leans toward the baby blue elements.

This quilt is now listed in the Sew Fresh Quilts Etsy shop!

Although I showed in this post that I did have an easy job of cutting all the pieces for this quilt by using my AccuQuilt GO! cutter, this same quilt could be made without any special rulers or dies.

Well Lorna...this turned out amazing! I love the pointy corners, and you binding turned out amazing. I'm kind of speechless.

margaret said...

such a colourful quilt and you have certainly quilted it, I am afraid I have done very little quilting on mine, the bare minimum!

Fran said...

Love the quilting idea!

riddleandwhimsy said...

Great quilting idea! I'm not up to quilting mine yet, which is a good thing since I have no idea what to do on it.

Teje Karjalainen said...

Hi Lorna! Fantastic and so delicious quilt! Great job with all the corners! x Teje

Vera said...

Fun and bright! I like your quilting. I better work on mine, lol.

Pam @Threading My Way said...

I imagine that binding was hard to do, Lorna. Love the look of the edges!!! A beautiful quilt.

Sherry said...

The quilting was truly the finishing touch to your lovely quilt.

Wendy said...

it looks fantastic! I love the bright colours. Have you left a section unquilted? I can't quite tell from the photograph, but the bottom left looks unquilted.

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

I like the way you quilted this - it goes with the pattern of the quilt so well

Georgi said...

Gorgeous quilt ~ I love the way the back totally matches the front! Love the spiral quilting, too ~ will have to put that on my to-do list!

Andrea @ Mouse in My Pocket said...

So pretty! I love that you left the angled sides. I wasn't brave enough to do that with mine. And that quilting is super fun, I'll have to keep that concept in mind for my next triangle quilt.

Izzy said...

What a stunning finish! I am loving the quilting you did. You had such a brilliant idea... Must try that on one of my quilts.

Carla said...

Very nice Lorna. Such fun bright colours and fabulous quilting

AmandaK@whatthebobbin said...

This is so bright and happy. The backing fabric is the perfect choice. Nice finish!

Snowcatcher said...

The binding makes me drool; I've tried an angled binding once, and yours is so well done. The colors are so bright and cheery, and the quilting is just perfect.

Wow! I just love the way you quilted this!!! So creative. Looks fabulous Lorna, thanks for quilting along:)

carolegoldquilts said...

Well done!!! Pretty quilt, cool quilting, and if it had been me I mighta squared up the edges instead of bothering with all those corners. I'm glad it was you, 'cause the jagged edge looks great.

Lea said...

This quilt looks so summery & happy. I love the cheerful fabrics, the quilting and how you did the edges of the quilt. It's a beauty!

Daphne Lewis said...

A quilt of beautiful colors and quilting!

So beautiful! I love the bright, happy colors! I am planning a triangle quilt for the "near" future and have been thinking of quilting it in a similar way. I love that quilting! And your binding is SO cool.
