Tangerine and Teal Triangles

Another week, another finish!


This triangle quilt was started in a class with Marianne Hatton last September. I really enjoyed Marianne's process for this class. You can see more about it in this post. Here are the blocks before they were rearranged.


On Tuesday, I was digging through a basket of quilt tops waiting to be quilted and landed on this one. This one looked like the easiest one to finish! My husband calls it low hanging fruit. All the cool kids have been quilting spirals and concentric circles, so I decided to try it. What fun!


Perfect? No. Effective? Yes! I love the texture and the radiating look.


The backing is an orange Denise Schmidt print that I picked up on clearance at JoAnn's.


For the binding, I had some V&Co Simply Color Ombre in Tangerine and Aquatic Blue. I couldn't decide which one to use, so I used both! I wanted to change color at the corners and I couldn't figure out how to do that with a miter, so I just chopped off the orange and added the blue. It's not pretty and I still need to close up the ends, but it's the look I was going for.

visiting from crazy mum quilts. This is amazing. Quilting in a circle like that is so effective but looks really difficult
