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.
