June One Monthly Goal Done

In January I started the Totally Triangle Quilt Along.  It was hosted by Sheila at Mystery Quilter

Anyone who has looked at my post knows the only triangles I do are HSTs.  This was a real stretch for me.

Twenty-five blocks done.  We did triangles, half hexagons, parallelograms, diamonds, hexagons and jewels.

All the blocks were made with a Creative Grids 60-degree Equilater Triangle Ruler.  Each block was very easy if you followed the instructions.  There were a few seams ripped out, but I took my time and worked through each block.

Now it was time to put them together into a quilt.  At this point, I wasn’t crazy about the white and grays mixed up.  I decided that it would be two quilts, of course much smaller than the pattern.  Just the right size for Project Linus.

Here is the first quilt, #37.  Surprise, Surprise it is straight line quilted, edge to edge.  And with grey and white stripe binding.  Once done and washed, I really really like this quilt.  I used a leftover piece for backing.

 

Here is the second quilt, #38.  I had ran out of the gray for sashing, so went without the sashing.  It give a totally different look and feel.  I had a scrap left of some colorful fabric I used for backing.  But here are more straight lines, edge to edge.

 

I am glad to have completed my June OMG and will be linking up with Elm Street Quilts – OMG.

    The look and feel is so different with and without sashing; I’m glad you explored both options. Congratulations on two lovely finishes and stepping outside of your normal comfort zone.

    Congrats on finishing your goal and learning a new technique. I have yet to attempt triangles. It’s amazing how adding sashing can change the look of a quilt. Both are beautiful and will make someone very happy.

    Congratulations on the finish! I don’t go out of my comfort zone too often when it comes to quilting, but when I do I usually really love the outcome and the new techniques I’ve learned. Your quilts are lovely. –Andrea

    Triangles are not easy. Matching points can be rough on one’s soul. But you have done an amazing job on these triangles. So much to admire and enjoy. Congratulations on a gorgeous finish AND meeting your June goal!!!

    Wow! Beautiful quilts! The two quilts look so totally different, they have a very different feel to them, traditional and more modern. Love them both!
