I named my set of little quilts --- "Directional Triangles"
Next a few sketches.
I decided to look around my quilting studio, as sometimes I get ideas from the quilts, that I have already made. I may want to create one of them again or create a similar quilt.
This one is fabric stitched onto card stock.
And there were more on my bulletin board.
I selected my fabric --- pink and purple from Cherrywood Hand dyed fabrics and the grey is from Quilts by Barb.
Iron/pressed on Lite Heat and Bond.
I cut the pieces into squares and then into triangles.
I made the background fabric from the scraps of my grey fabric using the construction method from my Textures Quilt Pattern. It's a great way to create texture in an orderly construction method. You can purchase the PDF Downloadable Pattern for only $6.00 on Craftsy.
Next, I figured out where I wanted to divide the background to make 4 quilts using wooden knitting needles, so I could see the sections, before I drew the lines. I really wanted 3 quilts, but ended up making 4 quilts.
Next, I added the triangles to get an idea, before I drew the lines.
Then I drew the lines to divide the sections in to 4 quilts.
Then, I started peeling off the paper.
Pressed/ironed them in place.
It's ready to quilt!
I selected to use 80/20 Cotton/poly batting on the bottom and washable wool on the top to give the quilt more loft and stability.
I stitched on my drawn lines to make the sections separate.
I Wiggle Line Quilted around the triangles all the way to the edges of the quilt in each section. I Wiggle Line Quilted the triangles on both colors and through the center connecting them together in the line.
Here's the backside.
Trimmed the edges.
Separated the sections.
4 quilts or.....
Ready for the binding. I thought about a dark grey, but the black looked the best.
I am ready to link up to Persimon Dreams for the Project Quilting Challenge.
Enjoy your day!
