Triangle Brights

Triangle Brights

It’s finally here! The day I leave for the Sewing Summit. I am finishing up my packing today and will be catching a late flight this evening. Just in time, I finished up this final class sample last night. This quilt is a little example of what you can make with equilateral triangles.

Triangle Brights

I combined fabrics from my stash with some of Laurie Wisbrun’s upcoming Roughing It line. My son tells me the red camper print is his favorite (mine too!).

Triangle Brights

I quilted this one with straight lines on 1/4″ of each side of the seams. Then I bound it in white (an attempt to give the illusion of the colors floating down the middle).

This will probably be my last blog post until I return after the weekend. If you happen to follow me on Twitter or Instagram (@freshlemonsquilts), I will try to post weekend updates as I go along. For those that are joining me in Salt Lake City, I will see you soon!

A little taste of Fall before I leave :)

    Is any of your stuff ever not perfect? I think you’re giving me a quilting complex. I would love to see a post of your biggest quilting disasters sometime. Just saying. :p

      LOL oh Anna, I’ve had plenty of disasters – especially early on! I remember quilting one and then realizing later that the quilt had folded in half underneath and I was pretty much quilting it together in a big sandwich! And I promise there are little mistakes on this one too. I just try not to worry about them. Even if it’s not perfect, it’s perfectly mine. If that makes sense.

    Your quilt is really cute! I never would have thought to try that and I think it would be a great quilt to use up your scraps!

      I was thinking the same thing, Melissa – what a great way to use up scraps! I’m just finishing up a scrap quilt as we speak. Great job, Faith!

    Your equilateral triangles are so pretty, Faith. I love seeing what you can do to create fresh, modern quilts from simple, tried-and-true shapes. Your great sense of color and fabric style shines again! Have fun at the Sewing Summit. Wish I was there, too!

    BTW, looking at your equilateral triangles quilt, all of a sudden I thought, “I hope someday you do an apple core quilt!” :-)
