Triangles on Parade

I think that's what I'm naming this quilt. Or maybe Parade of Triangles. Whatever I decide at least the quilt top is finally done. I still need to baste and quilt this bad boy but I'm pleased to finally have it all put together.


I'm really pleased with how it turned out now that I added the white stripes. It broke up the chaos of all those different fabrics that was haunting me. With the addition of the large white sashing I had extra rows of triangles so I decided to make a side border that would hang down nicely on the side of the bed.


I tried to take some outdoor photos but it's hurricane season here in Florida. That meant some high winds and this was just moments before it got dark as night and the skies opened up.

  3. When I am not drawn to making fiddly patterns, I love one-block quilts like this. I never thought to add borders to my triangle quilt, but what you have done is so effective!

  4. Lovely! The addition of the white sashing was a wonderful choice. I really like how it breaks up the colors and give you time to focus on each grouping.
