Triangle Quilt Along: Week 2

It’s the second week of the Triangle Quilt Along over at The Sassy Quilter.

This week’s goal is to get all of our triangles cut, and I am happy to report that I am (shockingly) still on schedule.  Of course the fact that getting each part of the project done on time gets me a chance at a prize doesn’t hurt.

Once I started cutting I decided that I wanted to keep most of my fabric in the gray colorway, so I only ended up using one pink and 2 of the creams.  That may change once I start laying the fabric out, we’ll have to wait and see.

I’m pretty happy with how the focal triangles came out, though I wish I had a little more yardage as I only managed to get 4 of the large triangles fussy cut from my yard.  Four is probably fine, but I usually prefer odd numbers of focal pieces in my designs.  On the plus side, I was able to cut several extra smaller triangles, which should make up for the missing large triangle.

Are you doing the quilt along too? How did your cutting go?

  1. You are going to end up with a really, really fun quilt. You are making it for me, aren’t you? I like your large focus triangles. Have thought about doing some smaller pieced trianges to go into mine. Six small triangles in one 6″ one.

    1. I think that would be fabulous! I am thinking about doing another one already, using my Halloween fabrics and doing some of the triangles strip pieced to look like candy corn. Or alternately some fun summery prints with large triangles strip pieced to look like watermelon.

  2. Now that is a brilliant idea, Andrea! Adding interest with those large triangles in the design. Especially with such a fun print. If you don’t want to use all four, safe one to use in a pieced backing, maybe?
