Happy (early) Friday!
I wanted to stop in today to show you my Bright quilt, which I touched briefly on in my last post about my episode of Fresh Quilting. This project was cut from Modern Triangle Quilts due to space limitations, but I’ve made it available as a free pattern to my newsletter subscribers.
The Bright Quilt uses the Right Triangle blocks (from pages 57-72 of Modern Triangle Quilts) to showcase a modern and graphic twist on the very classic 8 pointed star. The pattern is fairly straight forward, just triangle blocks sewn into squares. Then the squares are sewn together.
For the quilting I used simple lines to echo each triangle’s design and straight, parallel lines in the white background. Straight lines, are a really easy way to arrive at an elegant finish and give the quilt dimension and depth.
The quilt as shown is pretty small, at 48” square. It’s a great way to make a few of the triangle blocks without committing to making a ton of the blocks. To make this crib sized quilt larger, you could easily add larger borders to beef up its size, a la my Tribute Star. Or, I think it would be fun to make 4 stars to make a huge king size quilt.
