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 each video we cover how to make the triangle blocks in depth from three different camera angles so you always have the best view. We also cover the quilt math of each triangle unit, so you know how to make your own patterns, or convert ones you already have to the methods we are using.
We’re making all the triangles from squares. So we sew on the bias BEFORE cutting it apart. This helps keep the fabric from stretching out of place and results in much more accurate blocks in the end.
You can use each tutorial on its own to learn the techniques for whatever quilt you are working on. 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 using the fabrics I used while supplies last. You’ll get the same fat quarters I used and get to pick your own background to customize it to your tastes. 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!
