Oh, I am in!! Sassy Quilter’s Triangle Along begins…

I had been rolling around the idea of a black and white quilt lately.  Karen, a friend at the quilt retreat, made a very cool log cabin quilt in black and white prints with red centers.    I joined The Sassy Quilter’s Triangle Along.  I saw a picture of an amazing black and white triangle quilt with pops of blue color at Freshly Handmade.  I looked through my stash, the only black and white fabric I found was Halloween – lots of spiders, webs, and ghosts.  Not really what I was looking for.  

This is what I will be starting with, a mix of fat quarter and half yard cuts:


I purchased a fat quarter bundle from Pink Castle Fabrics.  They have a great selection of stash builders and searching fabrics there is a breeze due to their organized website.  I ordered the Black and White Blogger Bundle by Brenda from Just a Bit Frayed.


It was only later that I realized that I needed 30 fat quarters.  Yeah, I bought 12.  Whoops, guess I needed more black and white – ordered 14 more fat quarters and stack of solid purples.  Next stop for purchasing, Pink Chalk Fabrics.


The solid fat quarter bundle has a great range of purples or “orchid”, Pantone color of the year.  The binding is the 2nd color from the bottom.  The Michael Miller Couture Cotton solid fabrics are incredibly soft.  A quilt just of those fabrics would be dreamy!


I also stopped by my local quilt store for a few more black and white prints.   The bundle that I am starting with is a mix of fat quarters and half yard cuts of black and white.


The curly mustache is my favorite print out of all of the black and white prints.


If I need to have more whites, I can stop at the LQS.   The backing will be Architextures by Carolyn Friedlander 108 inch Black Crosshatch.


The Triangle quilt along will take place over 6 weeks.  The plan is to get cutting this weekend and have it laid out by the end of our spring break (Thurs 3-28 & Friday 3-29).  I have a long arm appointment scheduled for April 26th, so that will help motivate me to get this ready for that date.

About My Pieced Life

I am in love with all things quilting. My sewing room has many works-in-progress and a large stash of fabric. I have big plans and lots of ideas of creations I would like to make. My wonderful husband supports my obsession and Carson, my Australian terrier, keeps me company while I sew.

  1. Oh, this is gonna be dreamy for sure!!! Love the plan you have for this:) I did t know Carolyn Friedlander had backing fabric<3

    • Thanks for hosting the quilt along! I didn’t know there was 108 inch Carolyn Friedlander backing until I saw it at my LQS. I have a feeling that I may be purchasing this backing in other colors as well.
