Time to share another quilt from my book, Patchwork Essentials: The Half-Square Triangle! You can find all the posts about Patchwork Essentials using the MY BOOK link at the top of every page, or here.

I'm going to share each quilt, in order, with the exception of a few that I've already shared. We're now in the Patchwork Play chapter. The Citrus Peel quilt is first up, I shared that quilt here: Citrus Peel Quilt. Now it's time for the Triplicate quilt!

For more on how the book is structured see this post.

This quilt is a twist on one of my most popular quilt tutorials, the Patchwork Chevron Quilt. The basic technique is to create half-square triangles with nine-patch blocks. It really stretches your fabric, so it's perfect for using with extra special prints! It's also a very quick make, so a good one for when you need to make a quilt for a gift on short notice.

For the colors I used a slight variation on primary colors, pulling mostly blenders. The print I used on the back (the yellow floral with pops of coral) is one of my favorites, and kind of set up the entire color palette. It's from an older collection by Art Gallery Fabrics called Chromatic.

The quilting was done by Melissa Kelley of Sew Shabby Quilting. I chose the design Take Five, which is all triangles. It felt like I had to have at least one quilt with a triangular quilting design in the book!

Happy Quilting!
