It’s the 5th and final week of the Triangle Quilt Along over at The Sassy Quilter.


I’m happy to report that I’ve managed to finish the quilt on schedule.  I decided to quilt my quilt following the piecing.  It came out pretty well, but it took a lot longer to quilt than most of my projects.  It’s not a heavy quilting design, but it’s still much heavier than my standard quilting.

I’m really quite pleased with how my quilt turned out.  I’ll definitely be making another version of the triangle quilt soon.  Did you participate in the Triangle Quilt Along?  How did your quilt turn out?

    I’m still assembling mine but i love how your’s turned out especially the large feature print that could be exactly what I need to do with large print fabric I’ve been hoarding!

      Thanks so much Ruth! Those large triangles were super easy to do. I posted a tutorial last week, if you need a little help with figuring out the math for making the large triangles work in your quilt..

    Congrats on a gorgeous finish, Andrea! What a sweet quilt with those fabrics and the larger triangles worked into the design. Just a perfect quilt all the way around. Well done!

      Thanks so much Lorna! I’m looking forward to trying another triangle quilt soon using the Halloween fabrics I don’t have any other projects for.

    I haven’t even basted mine yet! I don’t think I’ll get done in time for the final linkup as I’ll have the five year old this weekend, and while quilting a little ‘may’ be possible with her ‘help’, basting is definitely not possible! 🙂
    I will finish it though not on time for the linkup, hopefully in time for Mother’s Day as I plan to gift it to my mom.

      You can do it! I have faith in you.

    I love that ghastlies print, I wish I got some of it. What a clever idea to incorporate the larger triangles. Nice finish!

    • Andrea on April 27, 2014 at 12:10 am

      Thanks so much! You can still find the prints some places. I actually found mine in a Hobby Lobby with the Halloween Fabrics.

    You know I just love this quilt! The quilting suits these triangles perfectly. Thanks so much for quilting along and I can’t wait to see what other triangle fun you get into:)

    • Andrea on April 27, 2014 at 12:09 am

      Thanks so much! I don’t think I would have made a triangle quilt any time soon if it wasn’t for your quilt along!

  7. CeLynn on April 27, 2014 at 5:44 pm

    I did and my quilt turned out quite well! I love yours,the triangle quilting is perfect.

    • Andrea on April 27, 2014 at 6:38 pm

      Thanks! I will be sure to stop by and check yours out!

  8. Vera on April 29, 2014 at 1:51 am

    I like your version too. Congrats on great quilt finish! I know what you mean about the quilting I wasn’t up to doing this two line all around but it looks great.

    • Andrea on April 29, 2014 at 4:38 pm

      Thanks so much, Vera!

  9. Karen on May 1, 2014 at 7:38 pm

    I’m so glad I came here to see the pictures bigger. On Instagram I thought the big triangle was a cat (mouse in my pocket). I love this even more! I also love the splashes of pink. I’ll make another triangle quilt one of these days and incorporate these ideas into it. Great job!!!

    • Andrea on May 2, 2014 at 2:52 pm

      Thanks so much for stopping by, Karen! I’ve got plans in my head for another triangle quilt soon, which should add some more fun concepts. But first I need to get a few of my projects in progress out of the way.

    I’m still working on mine – it’s getting close to king-size, so it’s taken me a little longer than I expected when I jumped in!
    Yours looks great – love the big triangles! Such a smart idea!

    • Andrea on May 4, 2014 at 12:00 pm

      With it being King size, I think you should be allowed a little extra time. That’s a LOT more seams and more quilting. I’m sure it will be amazing when it’s done.

  11. Heather Graves on September 23, 2014 at 5:15 pm

    I love the addition of big triangles in your quilt – I don’t think I’ve seen that before!

  12. Patchwork Breeze on September 23, 2014 at 9:47 pm

    What a nice quilt. I purchased some pre-cut triangles and I think a quilt will not be so difficult to make after seeing yours. Thank you.
