baby spring triangle quilt

I’ve been having fun making up fabric stacks and showing a few here on Fridays. My goal is to actually make a quilt, even just a mini quilt, out of each fabric stack. We’ll see… perhaps a lofty goal!

Anyway, I loved this springy mix of yellowy greens, aquas and light grays, pulled from a favorite Liberty of London print (the floral shown in this stack). I’ve been wanting to try out an equilateral triangle pattern, so I snagged myself a triangle ruler from Joann’s and set about cutting this stack into a stack of triangles.

I only had a small piece of the Liberty, so I opted for smaller triangles – cutting them at 4.5″. It made for a small quilt (only about 32″ x 34″), but oh so very cute! It’s soft and pretty and a little floral, and just perfect for a brand new baby. I think it will be set aside for the next little girl (there seems to be an influx of boys at the moment!)

The backing is a mix of three favorite prints – this Lizzy House butterfly print I’m so fond of, a great print from Simpatico, and one of my favorite basics by Laurie Wisbrun. Also soft and pretty.

It’s quilted with straight lines 1/4″ from each seam, and I really love the way it looks. As a bonus, the minimal quilting keeps this quilt nice and soft.

    So soothing and pretty! I, too, bought a triangle ruler but I’ve yet to take it out of the packaging. Was it simple? Or I guess I should ask, would you use it again?!!

    Love the color scheme. I always find that the hardest thing in a quilt. To choose the color that go well together.

    What London of Liberty print is that? Love it, but I haven’t been able to find it online. I think it might be from the upcoming quilters lines? Really love this quilt!!!

      I’m not quite sure of the name of this print. It is a Liberty of London tana lawn (not one of the upcoming prints from the quilting line)… maybe someone here knows the name of this print?

    Ashley,

    This quilt is so pretty. Have you described how you made your equilateral triangle quilts on your blog? Or, could you point me in the direction of some good directions? I love their look and would really like to make one soon. Thanks so much.
