A Finish from the Back of the Closet

First, I hope all of you from the states had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I was thankful for all my great friends and that I didn't have to drive anywhere!

I don't think I have ever shared any in-process photos of this triangle quilt I finished this week.  This was a project one of my clients asked me to adopt.  She had all of the triangles cut but didn't find sewing together all those triangles together was very much fun.  It has been stored in the back of the closet for months.  I thought I would get it out and finish it this year.

I think her plan was a bit different for this quilt.  But I didn't like how it was looking so I simply laid these triangles in the above random layout.  The fabrics are neon bright and were fun to work on.  

I took my quilting inspiration from the black fabric - I simply quilted in a traveling loop horizontally across the quilt.

She gave me all of the fabric she had purchased for this quilt - so I used all the leftover pieces on the backing and the binding.  

Next time I see her, I will offer it back to her all finished up.  This is a nice napping sized quilt and she has a houseful of teenagers!

A big Thanks to all of you who follow along on my quilting journey.  
I really am very grateful!

So nice of you to finish that quilt for your friend! Are the triangles made with the Tri Recs rulers? They have that look! I like the quilting design, too. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving Day, Cyndy!

SEW sweet of you to offer the quilt back to her now that it is finished!! I'm sure she will be surprised and delighted.

That's a neat quilt! You can't go wrong with brights and black, and the "triangle in a square" is a refreshing change from just HSTs. Great finish! I'm sure your friend will be pleased :)

What a fun quilt. Glad that you were able to get it all finished up.

It came out so pretty! I’ll bet she is very surprised when she sees it finished! You’re a sweetie to offer it back to her! Bet she says 'yes!'!

You did those triangles justice! Love the random layout. One more off your list is always a good thing!

What a bright quilt - her teenagers should love it! And another thing to cross off your list. You can come to my house and finish up some of my old projects if you'd like! I could find plenty to keep you busy :)
Happy Thanksgiving (belatedly) to you. I'm grateful for your continued sharing of your creative quilty projects.

That looks like a fun quilt! I like random placements!!

Paula said...

This turned out great. It's was nice that she gifted it to you rather than trashing it, and it's wonderful that you're offering it back. Thanks for sharing.
