Here's another project that I've had sitting in my craft closet for the last three months. I purchased this fabric and it's been cut into triangles waiting to be sewn into this quilt top.
I used my favorite and most used craft book, Denyse Schmidt Quilts, to make this. Previously I've made What a Bunch of Squares, Any Way you Slice it, A Day at the Beach, Big Zig, and the Hold Me Close Heating Pad Cover. This book was the best $19.95 I've ever spent!
This is the Flock of Triangles Quilt top from her book. The fabric is the Free Spirit Jay McCarroll Garden Friends collection. The crazy bugs and little fruit drawings totally crack me up. I sewed and pressed and sewed all of these triangles together while listening to Belle and Sebastian's Dear Catastrophe Waitress album on repeat, and I cannot think of a better musical match for this fabric.
I had no idea what size this quilt was going to be when I started. I just cut triangles out of the 5 different half yard prints I had from the collection and then cut an equal number of triangles from my white fabric. The quilt is about 70 x 70 and consists of 21 rows of triangles each with 10 white triangles, 9 patterned triangles and 2 half patterned triangles. It's a lot larger than I had anticipated and is almost the right size for a full size bed.
