Geometric Bliss Triangularity Quilt

Wednesday, August 19, 2015

Happy Wednesday! I have a quilt finish to share today, WOO! Last month I finally got around to stitching up one of my nearly a year in the making Triangularity quilt. I cut this quilt out almost immediately after receiving my Geometric Bliss yardage last October. The triangles sat for a long time, and I worked on it a little at a time throughout this year. I let it sit so long, that by the time I was putting the rows together I had forgotten that I cut enough triangles for a Full/Queen vs. a Throw! I did a little ripping and got back on track. I should have taken better notes!

I'm excited to have another quilt made in this collection. There are so many of my favorite colors in this collection: orchid, mint, turquoise, coral, peach, gold/green, red orange, black/white! 

This quilt is quite big at 91" square! As I mentioned this is the Full/Queen size from my Triangularity Quilt Pattern. This uses the included triangle size, and uses half-yard cuts. The pattern has four additional sizes, plus instructions/math for creating your own custom quilt!

I sent this quilt over to Melissa of Sew Shabby Quilting for the quilting. With all the geometric prints and the triangle shapes of the piecing, I wanted to keep the quilt design geometric too. The Crackle pattern fit the bill. It gives the quilt a really interesting texture, it's super cool in person!

I struggled a bit to decide on a binding fabric, so I asked Instagram! I ended up going with a Verve Violet and a dash of Empire Yellow (both are Pure Elements solids). Since the front has so much going on, using solids seemed like the best choice. I also wanted the binding to coordinate well with the backing, since I actually pieced it!

For the backing, I used a black and white script print from Minimalista plus the Cuboid Orchid print from Geometric Bliss. I didn't have enough of the main backing print, so I stretched it with the purple, creating this semi-wonky plus. Makes it kind of two-sided!

I'm so happy to add another large quilt to my collection. I was talking to Jacey last week and we agreed that we never regret making a quilt too big, but we often wish we'd made quilts larger. I have a lot of quilts around 60"x80" or smaller, but not many big enough for our bed. Now I have another to add to that list! Yay!

Happy Quilting!

Wow, brilliant! I really love the geometric feel with the shapes, but a softer feel with the colours. Would look gorgeous draped over a day bed.

Yay indeed! It's absolutely stunning! It shows off your fabríc beautifully! And I have to say, I'm very glad that you gave it the geometric quilting that you did. I like geometries and I personally like not softening them with loopy quilting. So, I'm definitely saving the name of the quilting Pattern you used. The back is a great addition to the quilt, too!
