triangle quilt top

Thursday, June 11, 2009

Ever since I saw the Amy Butler Electric Quilt company software preview on trueup, I've had my heart set on making the solid triangle quilt pattern included in the set (see the last photo in the preview).





I initially wanted to copy the colors in the preview quilt, but after browsing on fatquartershop last week, I ended up changing the colors to complement this polka dot fabric. I plan on using the polka dots for the binding and the floral print for the backing fabric.






I'm pretty sure these three colors are my favorite color combo. They appear all over our house and I never tire of using brown, blue and green. I really love how this turned out. It just goes to show that solid colors and simple piecing can really create a classic, clean, modern look in a quilt.

I used four yards of solid fabric for the top. I was able to cut out 20 8-inch squares from each yard of fabric. The quilt is eight blocks wide and ten rows long and is about 60" x 75", so it will be the perfect length lap quilts for the tall people in our house.

I'm planning on doing some diagonal criss cross quilting with this to accentuate the triangles. I can't wait to get this one sandwiched and quilted!

  10. The quilt colours also match the "Girl With A Pearl Earing" painting :)
    I'm confused, are the pictures of the quilt that you are planning to make (with different background instead of the muslin) or of one you made, and you're using the floral as the backing fabric?
    Either way, it's a nice quilt!
    Cheers,
    Christine
