Triangle_quilt_2__large

Description

I know this isn’t done properly like a traditional quilt, and a family member who loves quilting was quick to point this out, but for me its more about the look or the colours that come as a result.

I love grey, mustard and cream and its getting onto Autumn, so to save on heaters I decided to make a bunch of very simple quilts. This is one of many and when I manage to churn out the others I dont know, but after the amount of unpicking I had to do with this one, I doubt future quilts will involve triangles in a specific colour order.

When I started this I just started sewing triangles together, not really concetrating on the angle or the colour pattern so pretty much every stitch had to come undone, but once I got past that and it was time to iron on the basting it finished very quickly.

Material Notes

Quiliting Cotton in Mustard, Grey, White and Cream.

    This looks fantastic what ever method you use and it’s the end result that counts!

    I agree, who cares about traditional quilting. You were brave to begin without a traditional pattern or technique. The result is awesome and very modern. I can’t wait to see the others you churn out.

    Who cares about traditional quilting techniques, this looks great! I love the colors you used and very neatly done.

    I absolutely love this! Grey and mustard are so chic together, it works really well with the bold, straight forward, geometric pattern. I too hate quilting and totally love a “pseudo-quilt.”
