Triangle Quilt-a-Long Finished


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.

  9. Very creative with the white section. Plenty of space to play and let the quilting shine! Nice work.

  10. 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!!

    Congratulations on your finish! Love the extra white space, and the quilting is fabulous. The back looks so wonderful also.

  16. I absolutely love how this came out. The accent strip is super fun. Congrats on a great finish!

  17. My favorite fabric line…I made my own quilt out of it! Beautiful!

  18. what gorgeous job you did quilting this quilt!!!!

  19. 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.
