Happy Valentines Day everyone !!! I'm scheduling this so am not sure what Dh has got up his sleeve to surprise me with but i'll let you know *wink*
I'm linking up with Can I get a Whoop Whoop Finish it up Friday and TGIFF
I've finished the Triangle quilt :O)
It started with 2 charm packs from my text swop and rainbow swop, I added some of my fabrics too and during the summer DD and I got busy with the sizzix isosceles triangle die.
oh to be in July with sun and fun I sewed and sewed and sewed and ended up with this fairly decent quilt, not all the points match up but alot of them do seem to :)
it's not huge at 44x60" but it's perfect for two people to sit on the settee and snuggle
It's sat in the UFO pile for ages but on Sunday the quilting and Aurifil gods were with me and within a few hours I had the quilt back off the frame. It's quilted in my first attempt at hearts and loops with my go to Aurifil polyester for longarms in Seashell #5505 and bottomline in white for the bobbin.
Binding was the hardest part, I didn't want to square the edges off although I am NEVER EVER doing a triangular binding again. Making it was easy and with the simplicity bias binding machine I soon had this yummy on the bias bias binding
But omg, what a nightmare trying to get it to still look triangular and it took sooooooooooooooo much longer than usual straight sided, (even more so than the scallop binding's i've made in the past)
The rain stopped long enough yesterday for me to run out and take these piccies in the sun, the backing is a bit of leftover cotton sheet from one of last year's siblings together quilts.
Thirty minutes later it was given the seal of approval by two little monsters, the bro pushed his sister off it. It's also another finish from my Finish along list :) whey hey hey
Wish me luck and send good vibes to the quilting gods, tomorrow is Giant Star burst quilting day.
