A Sassy Finish


Hurray!  I finished my Sassy Triangle Quilt with time to spare!  The weather cooperated for a bit so I was able to pop out between showers and take some photos.  I really love how the winter grays work so well with the acid yellows and orchid purples.



I was able to use up the rest of this older fabric on the back.  I don't often piece my backs this much but I certainly didn't want to go buy fabric so this was the best option.




For the quilting, I decided to give Amy's Scroll Flower a try.  It must be really similar to something I have a definite muscle memory of as I always headed out in the wrong direction.  Oh well, my flowers have three rows of petals.  What can I say, it was late and my brain was too tired!  
It still looks great however!




This quilt was so pretty laying next to my succulent garden with all of its spring growth and lime green plants.  I am looking forward to another sunny day so I can go out and dig in the dirt!

Paula over at The Sassy Quilter hosted this little Quilt Along.  Wasn't that nice of her!  Final link ups of all finished quilts happens April 25th through May 3rd.  I am really looking forward to seeing all the awesome triangle goodness!


Now on to the next project!  I actually have two empty design walls right now.  
We certainly need to remedy that!

Yes! This is a beautiful triangular finish, Cynthia! I absolutely adore the quilting. That extra row of petals? Love it! Good for you using what you had in your stash to complete that gorgeous backing. You make me wish I had more room for another design wall, too!

Izzy said...

Sandra Walker said...

You are my heroine! TWO EMPTY design walls? I wanna be like you when I grow up, lol. This quilt is just beautiful, just glowing, and putting it outside in that setting definitely shows off not only the colours of the quilts, but also of the garden. I LOVE your garden path!! It oozes of serenity, harmony. Now I want to do this quilt along too! Funny, I thought of a similar flower to do on my Scrap-a-Palooza Bar quilt...great minds... :-)

Gorgeous! And I love the quilting, I've been wanting to try out Amy's flowers too, but everything in my quilting pile right now is too guy-oriented for flowers! You're welcome to some of the projects on my design walls if you want help filling yours :-)

Try this again. You did a great job with the scroll flower. I think it's a great match with the triangle quilt!

CeLynn said...

It looks superb outside! Using older fabrics for the backs of quilts is a great idea,and I love your pieced back just as much as the front.

A Nudge said...

Looks wonderful - and looks like two different quilts with that great back. Love it. Thanks for linking to TGIFF!

Michele said...

It turned out fabulous and I love the color combo.

Elizabeth said...

Love those triangles! Your fabrics are so pretty together. And the back is almost as fun as the front! The quilting is perfect. Congrats on a great finish and thanks for linking up!

What a nice quilt. Thanks for sharing it on Tuesday Archives. I really like the quilting.

Podunk Pretties said...

Everything about this quilt is great, I'm not a fan of purple but I really like it in this quilt. Inspiring me to go dig through the purple stash.

JanineMarie said...

Thanks for resharing this! I really love triangles. But I also like how you did that framed large square on the back. I'll be filing that way for use sometime.
