Triangles and More Triangles ~ A Finished Quilt

I am so excited to present the finished Equilateral Triangle Quilt today! I love this classic color palette and I am pleased that the choices I made for the layout of the triangles and the fabrics have worked so well. I enjoy working with a combination of low volume and darker fabrics to create interest and pattern. In addition, mixing prints from various fabric collections and working from stash makes me seriously happy!

The quilt is quilted with simple straight - edge to edge - lines. I first ditch-stitched the horizontal seam lines to help stabilize the quilt sandwich, then quilted vertical lines spaced 1 inch apart across the width of the quilt. I love this simple and clean look, and like that it gives the quilt a soft hand without any fuss.

For the back of the quilt I have used my go-to backing fabric: Newsprint from the Story collection by Carrie Bloomston. And for the binding I have used a narrow dark navy (so dark it almost reads as black) and white stripe fabric.

  2. Loving this quilt.
    I'm new to quilting and not made one yet but I'm starting to cut some fabric. What does low volume/white fabric mean please? Just less white background fabrics? Thanks

    1. Low volume means "quiet" fabric, so pale fabrics which don't shout out and draw attention to themselves. Good luck with your first quilt!
