Description

Inspired by this quilt by Blue is Bleu.  I want to make a throw sized one, but I had never worked with these types of triangles before (only HSTs), so I wanted to do a mini for practice.  Fabric is all Kona:  Coal, Turquoise, Grass Green, Chartreuse, and White.  Some of my points are a little off, but I think I know what to do to fix that when I attempt the large quilt (one day - too much on my plate as it is!).  I used this Tri-Tool Ruler and cut 3.5" triangles (they finish at 3" sewn in).  I plan to hand quilt it.  The back is white with another strip of the pieced triangles.  I am not sure what color I'll bind it it, but it will be one of these solids.

UPDATE 10/1/12:  I quilted it today!  Just some random straight line quilting.  It got a little uneven when I went over some points where there were lots of seams meeting.  :-/

UPDATE 9/6/12:  Um, so it took me a year to finish this little thing!  I found it in my WIP basket and all it needed was binding.  I happened to have a piece just long enough left over from my Marcelle Medallion, so I got to it.  Can't believe it took me so long!

I love these colors. I'm always interested to see how others use solids in their work.

Very cool. Kind of a modern amish! Triangles scare me but that ruler looks very interesting.

Just went to the full sized quilt and it is smashing. Will you make your full size in the same colors as your mini? So cool!
