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 I’m sharing how I always use two pins when I am joining triangle points to make sure they all come together correctly. I use one to align the points right on top of each other, and the second to secure the fabric together in the right side of the seam allowance.
Discovering this technique was a game changer for my points. It allowed me to go from crossing my fingers that everything would turn out OK, to knowing my points would be fabulous 99.9% of the time.
In the video I am sewing together the quilt blocks 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!
