Happy Friday Finishes! My Triangle Quilt Along quilt is done and I decided "Squirrely Triangles" would be an apt name.
These fabrics were pulled 100% from my stash, about a dozen or so, based off the color palette from the squirrel and bunny fabric. I'm super please with how my spur-of-the-moment fabric pull came together! The colors are so soft and pleasant.
The thing about triangle quilts-- the reason they are so "squirrely" are the points. Paula at The Sassy Quilter did an excellent job guiding us through the steps to make these quilts successfully. Personally, I think that perfect point are overrated (you can read my little rant about that here).
All the same I was tickled to find that probably 70% of my points in this quilt are what I would call "good." (Full disclosure: I didn't starch. I mixed quilting cottons and cotton lawns. And my precision cutting leaves something to be desired.) What I'm saying is, if I could do it, you can do it, too.
I quilted it very simply with my walking foot, outlining all the seams in yellow thread. I like the little stars this makes at all the intersections.
For binding I went with a yellow solid double fold, machine stitched down to both sides. Binding along the zig zagged edges was time consuming, but not that difficult.
The backing is a cute floral with the same teals and greys as the top. I wish I'd found something more gender neutral, but oh well.
Label sewn under the binding. It's done, washed, and ready for duty!
