Triangle Quilt Finish

A couple months ago, I decided to start going through all of the project boxes and bags I had stuffed away on shelves and in cupboards.  I either needed to work on the project, make the decision to pass it on or break down and put the fabric in my stash.  One of the boxes I came across was filled with blue and brown yardage that had been passed on to me.


Thanks to my AccuQuilt Triangle Die, I quickly cut up enough pieces to put together a quilt.  I love that the dies have the notches for alignment right in the dies.  It makes assembly so fast and precise.



I was able to get it quilted up and the binding sewn this week.  It is not in colors I like but it is a pretty quilt so I hope I can sell it.  The fabric was pretty much free to me so I should be able to make someone a nice deal. (Email me if you are interested!)




I quilted the quilt with a pantograph called Ebb and Flow in a light blue thread.  I really like the soft curves with the triangle shape of the piecing.



I cut the rest of the yardage up into strips and made a string quilt.  I hope to get the top quilted up soon so I can share this finish too.  

Now I have to deal with the next project box I unearth.  I know there are a number of WIPs that I have completely forgotten about.  So stay tuned....who knows what it will be!

The blue and brown look great together. Nice to make lemonade from someone else's "lemons."

Looks lovely! Finishing a triangle quilt that I started over 3 years ago is next on my list of projects to tackle, so seeing a completed one provides a little more inspiration to get something done :-)

I am jealous of you whipping through your projects. I did something(and don't know what) to my thumb, so I am not going at full speed but I sure wannta be. Great finish, hope you sell it quick!

Another super quick gorgeous finish. Well done as always.

I do love this blue & brown combo, looks wonderful! I like the way you push on with these 'scrappy adventures' from the design wall right through to a finished quilt. I tend to flit back & forth a lot, but a few quilty finishes would be a good goal for me this year!

Good use of the dies and fabric. Love the results!

Louise said...

It's pretty! And how nice that you were able to use all the scraps for a string quilt. It's so satisfying to completely use up a batch of fabric, isn't it?

Janice Holton said...

What a great and quick finish! What did you pout on the back? And how big is it? You're right, it is pretty!

Fun quilt and string blocks are a good way to use up the leftovers.

Having an empty project box is such a great accomplishment. Congratulations on getting two quilts out of your free fabric.

One quilt made and another in the works from the same gifted scraps! Way to make those scraps work for you!!

ShirleyC said...

I love the colors! I'd like to know how you finish your string quilt. I did something similar years ago.

Pretty quilt! Great decision to just pull a box and work through it!

This is a pretty one, Cyndy! Someone is definitely going to want it! I've had a triangle quilt on my list for a long time, but cutting it out always stops me from even getting started. Your Accuquilt cutter looks so wonderful for that sort of thing!

That turned out really nice. I think the blues and browns are great!
