This quilt was a fun quilt to make. =) It has an extra bonus of being a great scrap buster. For the string triangles, I cut triangles of a foundation fabric (I used old white sheets) using my tri-recs ruler and covered them with strings to make blocks. When I exhausted the colors I had in my string box that would work for this project, I cut up other fabrics on my stash and made whole triangles. I like the mix of pieced triangles and whole cloth triangles.
A few years ago, I made an impulse buy of this watermelon fabric. I wasn't sure if I would ever find a way to get it out of my stash pile, but I did! It's perfect for the back of this quilt!
For the quilting, I outlined all the triangles. I then took 3 different sized diner plates and traced around them, over lapping them all over the quilt. Like bubbles, if you will. Only they are big bubbles. =) Super easy and it was fast!
A peek at a few of the fun prints...
The quilt finished at 61 ½" x 75 ½."
Tomorrow, Brooklyn will be visiting for a few hours. She will have her hands full of 4 quilts to give away to her friends and her new baby cousin. =)
Have a happy week everyone!!
