I made progress this week on my Triangle QAL by stitching together the triangles to form rows!
You can still join in on the Triangle QAL by checking out Paula’s blog, The Sassy Quilter.
I’m using the Brewsky line by Clothworks along with 3 Kona cotton solids. You can read about my fabric selections here.
The 12 rows of this quilt took up my entire design wall. It will shrink down a bit when I sew the rows together during next week’s assignment, and I think the finished size will be the perfect beer-themed quilt for my wonderful hubby.
I’m trying to make this as a surprise, but I’m pretty sure that he knows something is up when I told him don’t go into the playroom! My sewing room (a spare bedroom) is too small for a design wall and cutting table so I’ve taken over a corner of the all-purpose playroom.
Here’s a look at the rows on the design wall:
Some of the prints are directional so I had to be careful to keep those triangles pointing in the correct direction!
Oddly enough, this quilt continues to be a project that holds very little interest to my feline quilt inspectors. My dog has been my quilting buddy on this project instead!
At first, I wasn’t too sure about the bold red, but I did match it to the reds in the print fabric using my Kona color chart. The red is growing on me, and I think it adds interest while still keeping in line with a “manly” themed quilt.
Enjoy the triangles!
