Accuquilt Go Challenge April

accuquilt go challenge

This month I’m highlighting the Equilateral Triangle die.

 GO! Equilateral Triangle-4 1/2" Sides (4 1/4" Finished) (55429)

it’s often paired up with the hexagon die, like we saw in February where Connie made a quilt.

I had some batik scraps and decided to make a scrappy random quilt with these triangles.

I didn’t care how the triangles matches up.

I also for once, did mitered corners- I remember why I NEVER do mitered corners! but I do love the result!

I quilted double straight lines on the diagonals and SITD horizontally.

On the border I did a loose zig zag to match the fabric

While I was sewing the binding on, SOMEONE had sticky chocolate hands and grabbed the quilt!!

I used the same chevron fabric for the backing and hanging sleeve

And made this funny quilt label, I don’t know WHY I wanted to stitch out a lion, I just felt like it Winking smile

My oldest daughter names the quilt because she saw stars and a mountain in the triangles.

Here’s a “planned” quilt for a two colored quilt in 2 different tones

I also did an EQ Tutorial on how to design a quilt with the hexagons and triangles here.

I also finished quilting and adding binding on the wedge quilt!

I kept the odd edges on the sides, a bit tricky with the binding, but I managed Smile

I quilted a pointed loopy meandering all over it in the green variegated thread from Connecting threads I got a few weeks ago.
