Quilting in Romania is sometimes challenging! You can’t be bored! I will tell you about some challenges in January.
Now I am glad I can finally share this quilt with you. I made it for my sister Nina. I did not plan to make a quilt for her, but I had purple fabric in my stash and since she loves purple, I had to use it.
–Is this quilt for a give away on your blog? It’s pretty.
–Yes, for giving away!
–Please, please, don’t give it away, I want to buy it!
So, a few weeks before her birthday, I had to tell her it is her quilt. It was wonderful to see her face and her joy!
So, here it is! It was such a fun quilt to make so that I wrote a pattern too.
I love the way the strips are stitched around the triangles. Just strips and triangles are needed. Easy and accurate piecing, easy quilting!
If you have not pieced yet 60-degree triangles, don’t worry. The pattern includes a tutorial with tips for perfect piecing.You can piece this quilt very easy if you have a 60-degree triangle ruler. I use very often this ruler to make kaleidoscope blocks, in fact, it was the second ruler I bought when I started quilting.
But even if you don’t have this ruler, you still can make it using a rectangular one. The pattern shows you the how-to.
The pattern is very versatile. Once you learn the technique you can make quilts in different styles, using small or big triangles, wide or narrow strips. And here are two small versions you can piece in no time.
