Happy Tuesday! This week I'm going to take the time to talk a bit more about each of my new quilt patterns! We're going to start things off today with Triangularity.

I really love the look of triangle quilts.  There is something about them that really appeals to me.  I first started thinking about putting together an equilateral triangle quilt pattern as I was developing a class for Sewing Summit last fall.  While these quilts are beautiful and easy to piece, the math involved for figuring them out is not particularly straightforward.  Between what size triangle to choose, to how big it will end up being and how many triangles you can cut from a single strip.  It's a little funky!

Knowing that the math part was a bit of a challenge, I knew this would make for a great pattern!  So, here we are! Triangularity includes 5 quilt sizes: Baby, Throw, Twin, Full/Queen and King. In addition to that, I walk you through the math involved to create any size quilt you'd like, with whatever size triangle you'd like! It's not hard, you just need to pay close attention to the calculations and go slowly.  Completely doable! Also included in the pattern are instructions for cutting triangles with a standard acrylic ruler.  I don't buy a lot of specialty rulers, so this is how I cut mine! There is also a template included if you'd prefer to use that or do some fussy cutting!

Now, onto the cover quilt! I used Luxe in Bloom by Sarah Watson for Art Gallery Fabrics as a starting point.  Since I didn't have enough of it for the entire quilt I added in some other fabrics too.  There are some Oval Elements and prints from Coquette in there.

I have finally admitted that I cannot do everything and have started sending out a few quilts to be longarm quilted.  It was a huge weight off my shoulders to relinquish a bit of the work.  I sent this one to Melissa Kelley of Sew Shabby Quilting and I love the result.  I choose this really fun Square Dance pattern, I wanted to stick with a geometric quilting pattern to play up the triangles and balance out all of the floral prints. She used a pretty light gray thread which blends really nicely with the top and back.

For the back I used yardage of one of my very favorite prints, Fashion Scent from Coquette by Art Gallery Studio.  I've been saving this cutting for something special and this quilt was a perfect match for it.  It's so perfectly vintage and modern feeling at the same time. Good thing I still have a yard or two left!  I bound it using Mystic Grey Pure Element solid.  I attach all my bindings by machine to both sides. The process can be found in my binding tutorial.

I am so happy with this pattern and I think you're going to love it! It's great for intermediate quilters  and even beginners with a few quilts under their belts!

You can find the PDF version of this pattern in my shop, and the paper copy here! If you're a shop that would like to carry any of these patterns, send me an email or use the form under the Wholesale tab!

Happy Quilting!

  3. I haven't made a triangle quilt yet, and I LOVE that you already did all the math. :) How big are the triangles? Do they change size per quilt, or are they all uniform?

  5. Bought one! I was looking for a pattern for a FQ bundle I just got with pinks and blacks and text prints. I'll have to add some stash fabrics to it to get to 30 FQ though! Thanks!

  9. Hi Jeni, What size are the triangles in the baby quilt? I am wondering if I can fussy cut a fabric I have or if the pattern on the fabric is too big. Thanks!
