Equilateral Triangle Quilt – Finished!

Posted on: April 25th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon
Introducing my Triangle Quilt Along baby quilt… Completely completed!
I started quilting by stitching in the ditch around the focus triangle.
Quilting Detail
Then I spiral quilted around this block, alternating between 1/4″ and 3/4″ spacing.

And then returned to that focus triangle to add one final outline of quilting inside the triangle.
Machine finished binding in blue with white polka dots.

Interested in a binding tutorial showing how I conquered those inside corners?  Click here!
Backed in a fresh flannel print, I really love how this one came together.
Working with all those bright colours has been such a pleasure.
Flannel Backing
I am so happy with this sweet quilt.  And feel it could qualify as unisex.
In spite of the pink, the overall feel leans toward the baby blue elements.
This quilt is now listed in the Sew Fresh Quilts Etsy shop!

Although I showed in this post that I did have an easy job of cutting all the pieces for this quilt by using my AccuQuilt GO! cutter, this same quilt could be made without any special rulers or dies.

    such a colourful quilt and you have certainly quilted it, I am afraid I have done very little quilting on mine, the bare minimum!

    Love the quilting idea!

    Great quilting idea! I'm not up to quilting mine yet, which is a good thing since I have no idea what to do on it.

  5. Hi Lorna! Fantastic and so delicious quilt! Great job with all the corners! x Teje

  6. Vera says:

    Fun and bright! I like your quilting. I better work on mine, lol.

  7. I imagine that binding was hard to do, Lorna. Love the look of the edges!!! A beautiful quilt.

  8. Sherry says:

    The quilting was truly the finishing touch to your lovely quilt.

  9. Wendy says:

    it looks fantastic! I love the bright colours. Have you left a section unquilted? I can't quite tell from the photograph, but the bottom left looks unquilted.

  10. I like the way you quilted this – it goes with the pattern of the quilt so well

  11. Georgi says:

    Gorgeous quilt ~ I love the way the back totally matches the front! Love the spiral quilting, too ~ will have to put that on my to-do list!

  12. So pretty! I love that you left the angled sides. I wasn't brave enough to do that with mine. And that quilting is super fun, I'll have to keep that concept in mind for my next triangle quilt.

  13. Izzy says:

    What a stunning finish! I am loving the quilting you did. You had such a brilliant idea… Must try that on one of my quilts.
