With just 2 hours to spare before the midnight EST deadline I put the last hand stitch in the binding of my Triangle QAL. All things considered I am pretty happy with the final product. The one thing I love about working on a project that isn’t a gift or commission is that I have the freedom to just “wing it” with the design and quilting. I wanted it to be a little longer to fit a twin bed so I added a thick section about a third of the way down. The bonus is that it gave me a lot of whitespace to go wild with my free motion quilting. I also wanted the quilt to have a lot of loft so I used two layers of batter. Wool on the bottom and a polyester on top. Another plus…..this is my first FAL for the second quarter at The Littlest Thistle (here is a link back to my original post).
I grouped several triangles together and quilted them as one large triangle and I did some detailed quilting on the solid coloured triangles.
I like the way the quilting shows up on the backing.

This is all kinds of awesome!! Adding the white space was brilliant and your quilting is nothing short of spectacular! Inquiring minds want to know, what kind of batting did you use? 🙂
I used two layers of batting. Wool on the bottom and polyester on the top.

Wow! This looks awesome. Your layout was so fun and the quilting really highlights it. Fabulous finish:) Thanks so much for quilting along with me!
Thanks for all your efforts organizing the QAL. It got me to try new things and to push myself to be more free with my quilting.
visiting from sew darn crafty. I love the patchwork and the quilting is AMAZING.
Thanks for stopping by
I love what you have done with the free motion quilting – particularly in the white banner. It really raises the quilt to the next level.
It was fun to have all that white space to play in
Very creative with the white section. Plenty of space to play and let the quilting shine! Nice work.
Thanks for visiting and posting your comments
I love the white section you added-very clever!
Wow so creative and amazingly quilted. I love how you extended the quilt. I am making one and concerned it might be too short, this just might be the thing. The quilting is so creative, love how it looks both front and back!!
What a beautiful quilt and the addition of the white space is perfect! Thanks for sharing.

Wow your free motion quilting is just lovely! I’m loving all the triangle quilts I’ve seen lately, I’m super inspired.
It was a fun and quick QAL and it got me to try some things I have never done before.
I love all the detail in your quilting. Very impressive.
Congratulations on your finish! Love the extra white space, and the quilting is fabulous. The back looks so wonderful also.
I absolutely love how this came out. The accent strip is super fun. Congrats on a great finish!
My favorite fabric line…I made my own quilt out of it! Beautiful!
I love it too. I made my girlfriend a triple Irish chain out of it and used the leftovers for this QAL
what gorgeous job you did quilting this quilt!!!!
Thank you for taking the time to visit and post your comment. I enjoyed the freedom of just letting myself go and FMQ without and “rules”
Your insert is awesome. Imagine if you didn’t need to make it a bit longer it wouldn’t have had that great focus area. It’s really a lesson in negative space. Your quilting is inspired. Going to check out the rest of your dog inspired blog, my standard has a page on my blog.

I love, love, love this quilt! It’s GORGEOUS. The insert is just perfect–really breaks it up and makes it easier on the eye. I like the quilting from the back as well, it is so beautiful. Yay you!
oh wow! this is so fantastic! the quilting really adds so much to the quilt, and I like the panel!
Thanks so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
