summer breeze ...


 makes me feel fine...


inspired by many pretty quilts using triangles 
and also by the idea of cutting into some of my most treasured stash...


cutting the triangles went like a breeze and the layout just happened...
sometimes inspiration hits and it's good to just run with it


I like this kind of puzzle...
and I might have to get a bigger batting / design wall...


not sure how to best sew these 60 degree triangles together, so I please share if you have some good advice...



Wish you all a great weekend, diving into your precious stash, or not...

Hi Marit,
Great colors!
You just never stop, do you?

I think you should sew the triangles together by rows and then sew the rows together.

It's far away from being just "fine". It's gorgeous, wonderful, fabulous,...just fantastic. I LOVE it!
I would suggest sewing the triangles in rows and than sewing the rows together.

Absolutely gorgeous Marit!

There this flickr group that has some advice in the discussion thread about sewing triangle rows:

It's just beautiful. When I made a quilt like this, I sewed the eight triangles in each "block" together first, then I sewed the diagonal; rows together. It was very easy.

Oh that is divine Marit. Love the colours and the pattern you are making. When I did 60 degree triangles like that I just sewed them into rows from left to right, then sewed the rows together. It's awesome! xo

LOVE IT!! I would sew in horizontal rows. Are these triangles from an Accuquilt Go! die?

Mary said...

I love it!!!!!!! Been thinking about making a triangle quilt, now I know it needs to go to the top of the list.
You are great with color.

wow! that is beautiful! I have no help for you about sewing them together, I'm afraid, but I can't wait to see it finished :-D

my friend has done several 1000 pyramids quilts & her advice is to start by making bigger triangles - sew 4 together into a big triangle. That way you get intersections to help everything line up. (With the bias just sewing rows can quickly get out of control.)

Beautiful! Love your color choices! A 60° triangle quilt has been on my to do list for some time. Did you use Go Baby! to cut the triangles or another method?
