Triangle Quilt-a-long

I finished my triangle quilt! I made this one for one of my best friends because she gave me the fat quarter bundle for my birthday.

I put the rows together last weekend at quilt retreat:


I started this quilt on the Pfaff I have since traded in.


Then today I began quilting it in a meandering FMQing:


I did some of the quilting on my old brother machine that I am confident using and some on my brand new Juki that I only got yesterday!


I adore the backing fabric I chose, I am using it for the binding too.


The backing fabric had to be joined because the quilt was wider than 45" and both my other machines were set up to FMQ today, so I used the $20 Singer 306k I got this week for that! So I have used four different sewing machines to make this one lap quilt LOL


 Check out Sassy Quilter, the link is on my right side bar to see all the other triangle quilts. There will be some more photos at a later date, for the big reveal of the completed quilts!

  6. Just found this through the Tuesday archives at Val's. What a pretty quilt, I haven't made a triangle one like this but this is really eye catching. Great colors and simple piecing.

    Bonus... I caught a peek at your vintage collection in the background! So fun.
