Triangle Confetti

This quilt is for the final challenge in Project Quilting.


 

Season 5

Challenge 6 – the FINAL Challenge of Season 5, Project QUILTING:  Triangles!

 


The first thing that came to mind when the challenge was announced was wonky log cabin like dancing triangles.




 

 

Season 5

Challenge 6 – the FINAL Challenge of Season 5, Project QUILTING:  Triangles!
 
Made by Carla in Dodge City, Kansas
 
 
Size 48" x 54"
Triangle Confetti
 
After making 2 1/2" grey triangles and sewing 2 1/2" strips of bright Kona fabric around, it looked to me like the center had been cut out of the triangle.  That's when "triangle confetti" was inspired.


The large blocks were pieced to be over sized and then cut to be wonky (crooked) 12" squares.



 I made my very first paper piece pattern and used it to make the centers "float" in the bottom squares of the quilt.
 
 
 
 
This will be a fun donation quilt.

That is such a cute idea Carla and I can't believe you made a big quilt this time. I am lucky to finish small ones this season!

I love the whole thing, but the triangles at the bottom are killing me with the cute. Will you post your paper-piecing pattern for them?

I LOVE this! So much! The little confetti along the bottom is brilliant! I'm hoping eventually you'll share your paper piecing pattern - because it's just perfect!
