I have completed the Triangle Quilt Along! Whooo Hooo!
I did the long arm quilting Saturday, April 26th. I was there by 8:15 and out of the door by 2:00 p.m. I walked out of there a happy quilter; a queen size (91×91) quilt long-arm quilted for $115 including batting.
I didn’t go with my original plan for the thread or the quilting pattern. I tried variegated purple thread, black and white variegated thread, purple thread, black thread, and white thread. The white became the clear winner – it was the only one that could really be seen on all of the busy fabric.
The quilting pattern is Circles and Triangles. I decided to go with this pattern because it reflected the triangle structure and all of the dotted fabric within the quilt.
This is from the back of the long arm machine. Gives a great view of backing.
You can see the backing of the quilt. The thread is white, so the quilting is very subtle.
I am going to let the pictures show the results.
The quilting really shows up on the solid purple triangles.
I was even able to get the binding on within 24 hours of being quilted. That might be a record for me!
See, a much better corner.
I am very excited to be done! I didn’t think that I was going to make The Sassy Quilter’s deadlines. I only missed making one post and completed the quilt with a few days to spare! Off to wash the quilt, I love cuddling under a crinkly quilt on a rainy day. Unfortunately, the weather is cooperating with this plan.
Thank you Paula (The Sassy Quilter) for hosting a great quilt along!
