I finished my triangle quilt! I forgot to get real pictures before I sent it off though! Doh! This is a gift for a good friend (I can't say who until she receives it!) I used an equilateral triangle ruler with a base of 6.5" unfinished to make the triangles. I quilted it with concentric circles using my walking foot and a bar guide. It stinks the first 2 or 3 circles when you're turning the whole quilt under your machine, but after that it gets really easy! For the backing I used an IKEA fabric that I adore! It's a bit wider than quilting cotton so I didn't have to piece the back! The quilt finished 50-something" by 60-something". I didn't take a real measurement, sorry!
I don't have a great method for sewing triangles together. I'm more of the "better done than perfect" philosophy so sometimes the points look great and other times.....not so much. I don't really stress about perfection in my piecing--this is a hobby; it's supposed to be fun people! If I really want something perfect, I paper piece it!
I started watching Vampire Diaries on Netflix (OMG! so many cuties in that show!) and decided to randomly fussy cut some squares to pass the time while I drooled over the actors. Of course it ended up a rainbow!
I decided to make this into a pillow for my friend, Jessica, who recently moved to Portland. It seemed just her style and every new house needs some Heather Ross rainbow-goodness!
