Quilt top reveal – Triangle Boot Camp
My plan was to work all day on Friday at quilt retreat to finish my triangle boot camp class sample, which I designed for a class I’m teaching in June at Neal’s Vacuum and Sewing Center in Muscatine, Iowa.
But by the end of the night I just had the blocks done and the sashing cut out. I knew it was time to go to bed when I sewed one triangle on backwards.
So I scrapped my Saturday plan to work on baby stuff for a craft fair and finished the triangle boot camp top. The pieced border took more time to square up than it did to sew together, but I love the look of it. I think it ties the whole quilt together.
I also am really in love with my sashing. It’s just two half square triangles sewed to the end of a 12 1/2 inch strip, but when they come together they form a cute little pinwheel.
I’m loving the scrappy look as well. I pulled all the pink and purple fat quarters out of my stash for this quilt. I believe there are 21 total. I do have leftover fabric, which I’ll use when I teach the class for demonstrating.
The background is a gray print that has a suede look. I think it really adds to the pink and purple more so than my usual choice of white for the background.
Now I just have to quilt it, and spend an afternoon doing math so I can write up the pattern for various sizes. So if you like this pattern, keep checking back. I should post it soon in the Patterns section of the website.
