bloggers quilt festival

What's up?

It's time for bloggers quilt festival fall 2012, hosted by the lovely Amy. And we have a quilt we want to share with you all:

quilt name: Ghastly triangles
quilt measurements: 50" by 70"
special techniques: using a 60 degree ruler for the 8" unfinished triangle patches
hand-quilted by myself: marit, on quilters dream request cotton batting
best category: favorite hand-quilted quilt / favorite throw quilt


It's hand-quilted with perle no16, using an embroidery needle. If you are a regular visitor to my blog, you may know that this summer was my summer of making triangle quilts.

Ghastly triangles is my 7th and last triangle quilt started this summer. They are all lap size and quilted by hand. Six of the are living with me. As you understand, I got quite carried away, having so much fun with these big patches on my quilt batting design wall... 


My challenge was to use fabric from stash. The last bigger piece of the Ghastly family ended up on the back:


Have fun visiting more great quilts on the blogger quilt festival! You will find lots of lovely quilts over here (kind of trick and treating from the comfort of your own home... don't you think?)


(p.s. if you would like to see more of my triangle quilts, you will find them by clicking on the triangle label under this post)

Thank you for stopping by!

I love your triangle quilts. They always look wonderful. You make me want to start one myself soon. I just can't decide wether to purchase a triangle ruler or just use my normal ruler. Have a nice day!

Great triangles, wonderful.

Linda Beth said...

Great use of this fabric line! Why is it that triangles highlight fabrics like no other piecing shape can?? And as someone who has just recently revisited her hand quilting, I am very impressed seeing your work! Stitching to strive toward.
