Triangles quilts are absolutely beautiful, but they can also be intimidating. Getting your blocks to turn out the right size with all of your points in the right place can be a bit of a challenge.
That’s why we created the Triangle Masterclass, a collection of eight videos focusing on different types of triangle units that are commonly used in quilts.
In today’s video we’re starting to sew our triangle units together into a block. This can be one of the most challenging parts because it is really easy for your points to get out of alignment and lose points in your seam allowances.
So this video is all about how I pin and sew so that every point ends up where it is supposed to be. This also means that we cover how to “fudge it” or manipulate your triangle units so that everything looks perfect on the outside even if things are a bit off in the seam allowances.
The “fudging it” techniques are tricks I use in pretty much EVERY quilt I sew together. My blocks are always flat and square. And that’s not just me saying that. My longarmer loves working on my tops because everything is always consistently flat.
In the video I am sewing together the block from Raspberry Sherbet, the pattern I designed to teach the Triangle Masterclass with.
You can use this video to improve your triangle piecing on any quilt. Or you can get our pattern Raspberry Sherbet which uses all of the techniques we cover in the series. It comes in four sizes, but we made the lap version for this tutorial series.
Raspberry Sherbet is fat quarter friendly and we have quilt kits available!
We also have created a Triangle Masterclass category on our website that has in-stock fat quarter bundles that would work for this quilt in the lap size. Just add background and you’ll be good to go.
I can’t wait to make this quilt with you!
