Guest Post- Felicity Quilts


Break Week!

Quilting Your Triangle Quilt

Wow guys, You made it! It is finally break week so there will be no link up this week:) You get to have all of this week and the next to get those triangle quilt tops basted and quilted…and if you are behind, Well time to catch up! No worries, you can totally do it:)

Congratulations to Kris@SewSunshine!, last weeks winner! I will contact you so you can get your gift certificate to Pink Chalk Fabrics and your free pattern from Swirly Girls Designs.

I have a guest post today for you from Felicity Quilts to help you figure out how to quilt up your beautiful triangles.


Hi there! I’m Felicity and I blog (sporadically) over at Felicity Quilts. I was delighted that Paula asked me to contribute a tutorial to the awesome Triangle Quilt Along that she’s hosting!

Triangle Garden

I recently made a triangle quilt of my own, which is how Paula found me. As is so often the case for me, I wasn’t entirely certain how to quilt the top once it was done. I do have a tutorial on my blog that shows how to use a photo of your quilt top, a vinyl sheet and washable markers to audition quilting designs. But rainy weather here in Vancouver meant that I didn’t have a photo of my quilt top to work with, so I had to find an alternate method. Here’s what I did:

1. I went to the image that Paula has in the kick-off post for the Quilt Along. I right-clicked on the image, selected Copy Image from the menu, then pasted it into a word processing document. I then printed the document 4 times.

2. Using a coloured pencil, I started doodling possible designs. First I tried some straight lines beside the seams:

OK but seemed like it would take a long time

And then some organic wavy lines:

Not feeling it

A curvy S-shaped wave with echoes (I’d seen this design most recently here and loved how it looked):

Wavy Triangle Quilt Design
This one has potential but worried how it would affect all those bias seams

And a spiral:

Spiral Triangle Quilt Design

Yup, this one

3. I chose the design that spoke to me. When I saw it the spiral on my colouring sheet, I just knew it was right choice. As you can see from my finished quilt, I actually did concentric circles, mainly because I didn’t trust myself to be able to execute the beginning of the spiral well enough.

Print as many copies of the sheet as you want – you could even use regular graphite pencil and erase if you wanted to reuse the same sheet. But just give yourself permission to play. You’ll see very quickly what design work for you.

Happy Quilting!



Thanks Felicity! Just a final note here guys to remind you that the next link up will be for finished quilts and the Grand Prizes are a $75 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop and a second prize for $50 to Cotton Bliss! So keep pushing and get those tops done:) It will be totally worth it for some fun fabric shopping!

Triangle Guest Post- Erica Jackman

Quilts by Erica Jackman@KitchenTableQuilting

Popping in today is Erica from Kitchen Table Quilting. The Triangle Quilt Along started last week and I thought we could use a little triangle inspiration along the way with a few tips and tricks from a pro!

What first drew me to Erica’s blog was the name…Kitchen Table Quilting! This is where almost all of my quilting takes place and I think most of us can relate:)

The name may have drew me in but, the fabulous quilts and her fun and modern sense of color and style kept me there! You can see some of her amazing work in the collage above.

Sundown - 2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge

When I came across Erica’s recent finish for the 2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge , I knew I had to ask her to give us a visit! Erica was kind enough to let me share her photos with you and came up with these tips for you guys…

Erica’s Triangle Tips!


Hi guys! Erica here.

I love working with triangles, and even though they take a little more practice than squares, they are really not all that scary. I do not like to use starch or glue, I just keep things simple and have never had a problem with sewing on the bias.

•Cut accurately – I use the 12.5″ Creative Grids 60 degree triangle ruler. It’s not a cheap ruler, but it makes cutting triangles easy and quick and it really helps me with making sure my triangles are the same size.  If your triangles aren’t cut accurately it is likely that your fabric will stretch when you are piecing and the quilt won’t lay flat.

•Pin thoroughly – I am a dedicated pinner, I almost never skip this step, but I think it is particularly important with triangles. Make sure not to stretch the fabric as you pin. I like to place a pin at the top and bottom of the seam and then 1-2 pins in the middle depending on the size of the triangles.

•Press carefully – I like to gently press the seam open and then use a little puff of steam. Make sure not to move the iron around, just press it down.
