I Dream of Triangles

This quilt was so wonderful to work on.  I am officially in love with half square triangles.  Granted this quilt didn't go all well, but still I love it!

This quilt is going to be a gift for my great grandmother on her 91st birthday. She is the person who inspired and taught me to quilt in the first place.  I have 2 quilts made by her and I treasure them.   One day I shall have to get them out, photograph them and share them with you all.  She pieces and quilts by hand and each and every stitch is perfect.

I made it using Moda's Dream On line which I didn't much like at first as I am not a fan of vintage sheets, but as I was working with it really grew on me and now I quite like it!

I backed it in one of the large floral prints from the line and binded it with the green stripe which is one of my favorite prints. I straight line quilted it and now just can't wait to give it to her!

  1. Beautiful! Your quilting looks great and I am sure your great grandma will LOVE it! Oh, and I am just a little (ok maybe a lot) jealous of the sunshine in your pictures. Or maybe it's just the lack of snow. :)
