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.
