flimsy


Thank you for advise on how to put the triangles together!


I had an epiphany when I started sewing. The dog-ears of this 60 degree triangle gives a perfect guide when sewing the shapes together! For each and every seam! I love them! My clear view triangle template is my new best friend!

; )


I choose to sew the eight pieces in the block together to a big diamond,


















finger pressing seams,


sew diagonal rows together,




and press the seams with my steam iron while they were still in sections.


Another outside quick photo session:


The finished top is about 60 by 72, and my Amy Butler stash has slimmed down a bit...
These are so fun to puzzle together, I'm thinking of making another one!
; )


Could I tempt anyone to have a go? I think this 60 degree triangle is brilliant!

Love the fabric choices and your seams are so clean and spot on. I'd love to try this, I know I have that ruler in here somewhere!

Oh, I love it! I want to make one, but we're getting ready to move - so it will have to wait for a couple of months.

Kim said...

It is on my list and now that I see yours with those nice BIG triangles it is all the more tempting.

Lovely colors!

Happy sewing

Lovely to see the reverse- such neat seams and points. I haven't tried a equilateral triangle before, i really fancy it, I have some Julia Rothman Miscellany FQ that I would love to mix up with other stuff and cut big triangles from!

Cille said...

Stunning :) I'm having a little love affair with my 60 degree ruler. It is just the best. I love your layout. Will have to try this at some point.

This is fabulous! I have a 60° triangle but haven't used it for ages...hmm you've got me thinking :-)

judith said...

wow, I love this quilt!
I did not realize that the pieces are so big, until I saw the picture with your hands!
I must get this 60° triangle.

Wow- you are one busy lady! This quilt is wonderful and the colors are just perfect! Great job! And BTW I too have issues sewing together triangles. Shhh don't tell anyone tho. Lol

Mary said...

Yes! I love the equilateral ruler...I used it to make the Lark Quilt {also Amy Butler Fabric}. It is so fun to use.

Teje said...

Oh, looks so beautiful! I love your colours, fabrics and triangles, too! I made 'Orange Stones' similar but I sew every triangle row separate. With white it looks very different. I would love to make one like yours! x Teje

Mary said...

Very pretty colors, Very pretty quilt.

Ann Marie said...
