Triangle quilt

IF you take a look at my pinterest  Quilting board 
I have pinned a lot  of very interesting triangle quilts. 
I knew I wanted to make one with solids and one print. 
I wanted it to be soft and cuddly for the sofa. 

The cutting of all the triangles took the most time. 
I kept hitting the ruler with my blade and went thru a few blades in the process. 
I tried to use fabrics I had on hand. 
And the print came from my friend. She brought me some fat quarters from a trip to Niagara Falls.
It was perfect. 

In the quilt I used some blue  cotton couture. It was incredibly soft and I knew it would make the perfect back for my cuddly quilt. 

 I just kept it simple and echoed all the seams by 1/4 inch on all sides.
 I absolutely love the back.
Where the triangles all intersected it made a perfect star. 

For the binding I went with a Denyse Schmidt. 


It is just as soft and cuddly as I had dreamed it would be. 

I also treated myself to Sunday Morning Quilts. 
I love all the inspiration in this book.
