Hey! I’m back after a long break, but you know what it’s like! life gets in the way… So, soon to be the holidays, although it doesn’t really feels like it with that weather.
So I thought I’d come back with a triangle tutorial. My eldest chose a long time ago some really cool fabrics and wanted another quilt (greedy) (really I know how he feels!).
8 fat quarters, a triangle template, back fabric, wadding and the usual sewing paraphernalia.
Start by cutting all your fabrics in triangle (you could use a special ruler for that but I didn’t have one so used a template which took a lot longer than if I had a triangle ruler but hey…)
Then place them on your floor in the position you want, I tried to have some patterned fabrics mixed with plain fabrics to relax the eyes a bit, usually I like a lot of white in my quilts so it’s all new to me!
Once you’re happy, start sewing the sides of the triangle together one by one:
Press with an iron all the seams to one side.
now pin two rows together:
