I have a fear of triangles...part 2


Well my sewing mojo has well and truly returned and I spent much of the weekend at my machine. Although Rachel's quilt along began 9 weeks ago, I started on Saturday and have managed to get all 16 blocks done. Not bad for someone with triangle phobia!

A few of my favourite blocks

Pretend those loose threads aren't there please!

I don't think I'll make Rachel's 2 week challenge to get it all together, quilted and bound, but hopefully I'll at least have the top together in the next fortnight. I think I'll go with white sashing and cornerstones - maybe mini pinwheels.

I'm also thinking I might have this one quilted professionally as the thought of stippling over those bulky seams is a little scary. But I'm not sure whether to go with an all over design or have something different for each block - ideas?

That's a fantastic effort! I really like your fabric choices too. I'm quilting an allover design (loopy meander) on my Soiree quilt to provide some contrast to all those straight lines. If you are going to the quilter then I'm sure they'll have a design that's just right! Cheers, Ann :-)

Hey, good work! Looks fab. I find if I stipple a triangle quilt, I just make sure I go around the bulky joins rather than over them...

Love your triangle blocks. They look really good with the white background fabric.

OH my gosh they are looking all so good!!!!

Umm I will get it professionally quilted with one design for the whole quilt - you want to be showing off your blocks! Actually the truth be known - It will be oh way to much to work out which pattern for which block - I will give up!

Wow! When you find your sewing mojo you really do find it!! Fantastic! I'd too quilt it all over. Will help link all the different block together. If that makes sense lol! Look forward to seeing what you decide xox

Looks great. Great way to use up a lot of scraps too. It would look great with an all over pattern or stipple.
