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.

First FAL finish of Quarter #2

IrishChainCloserI’m half way through the second quarter finish-a-long and I’ve finally finished my first project.  It is a triple irish chain that I made for my friend Sue in Ontario.  She is a long time friend who follows my blog and makes such nice comments about my quilting and my four legged kids.  To see more pictures and read about the making of this quilt, click here.
