Triumphant Triangles!

It has been an age since I last blogged - Scout Camp, end of term, weekend in London at the Fat Quarterly Retreat and 5 days camping with the boys!

Phew I have packed a lot into the last 2 weeks!

Do you remember the equilateral quilt in really bright colours?

Well, it has gone on it's 4 week trip around Europe with my best friends Helen and Tom.

I loved working on this quilt. The mix of colours and designs made me smile every time I got it out to work on!

I quilted straight lines around 1/4" from the seam - don't look too closely, the mismatched seams are really obvious!

I raided the last of my large yardage from Pink Castle Fabrics sale section for the backing, with some of the remnants from the front added. The binding was made up of left over fabrics sewn into a strip.

It has left today on a mammoth 2500 mile road trip. Hopefully it will be loved and used for lots of lovely picnics!

Quilt stats:

Size - 55" by 57"
Fabric - lots of brights
Wadding - 100% Cotton
Thread - 100% cotton Aurifil wt50 in White


  1. Beautiful bright quilt, the triangles look great.

  2. I just love this! Yes, what a triumph! I have been wanting to do a triangle quilt, too. Do you mind? I am sharing this on my facebook page at with a link back. Hope that's alright!


  3. ohhh gorgeous, I've just cut my texty and rainbow charm squares into triangles and started to sew them up, yours has given me a size guesstimate, wasn't sure how many to do in a row :)

  4. This is fab! Such wonderful bright colours :)

  5. Gorgeous quilt and it was lovely to meet you at FQ retreat!!

  6. an amazing quilt! I don't often see triangle quilts with borders, but I really like how yours looks with that scrappy border around it. The colors would cheer the bluest soul!

  7. I love how bright and fun it is:) Did you use a pattern or a tutorial for it?

  8. This turned out awesome! I've loved watching it come together on IG :)
