Were you wondering why you never got to see my finished triangles from the Triangle Quilt Along???
Well, it got a little crazy sorting through all the final entries that I got a little behind! I also got a new camera and am trying to figure out how to get decent pics….so easy on my trusty iphone.
This quilt finishes at 50″ x 64″. I just loved working with these fun prints in Sunnyside by Kate Spain for Moda. I used a layer cake to cut mine and then added some solids to fill in the gaps.
I quilted along each side of the diagonal seams in a 50wt, 100% cotton Aurifil thread. The color is a light gray that blended perfectly with all these different colors.
For the backing I used a print from the same line.
I used a Zig Zag stitch for my machine binding technique just to spice things up a bit! I think it is fitting for the triangles.
Actually, the stitch I used is a little more than just a zig zag, this is called an Elastic Stitch on your machine. It takes three stitches in each direction….a little prettier I think.
Keep the seam line in the center of the stitch and you are bound to catch your binding edge on the back of your quilt! This method can be a little more forgiving if you have a hard time keeping it in the ditch.
Here is the backside of the binding.
These labels are by ikaprint and can be designed in a ton of different styles! They really make it simple to get my quilts labeled, especially since I tend to forget that step…..I know, bad quilter!
These adorable labels can be purchased from ikaprint HERE!
