Another Finish!

A triangle quilt had been on my 'to-do' list 

for quite some time now...


I chose to make mine from Denyse Schmidt's 

"Picadilly" fabric range from Spotlight,

complemented by Kona solid in Limelight...


I had great success with spray basting, 

using 505 Spray and Fix for the first time-

hardly a pucker in sight!




I used my favourite thread- Aurifil!

No.1231, which I call Pacific Lime of course!



It was a perfect match!



I quilted in a double diagonal line about 1/4" 

on either side of the triangles....



giving a diamond pattern all over!



It is not a large quilt-

about 44" by 56"


I think it would make a great picnic quilt...



or maybe just a couch quilt!



Now to decide what to make next....

Happy sewing!

  2. Nice work, Suz, very Springy (autumn-schmutumn, right?). Love the pattern the diagonals make on the back too!

  3. What a great finish! The colors are fantastic and it is perfectly quilted! I am so glad you had a chance to try spray basting. I don't use it every time but on small quilts I do. It sure saves time!

  8. I really really like this one Suz. Love the colors and the triangles. I just bought a triangle ruler so I think a triangle quilt is in my future too. Hopefully soon. Great photos too. Especially like the one in the tree.

  10. Oh! I love that. All that beautiful lime green matched with the lovely cobalt blue. I think I've got that same Auriful thread and I love it too. Great quilt.
