Merry Modern Triangles – 12 Days of Festive Trees is officially on Day 10.
We are done making modern triangles for the trees…
#PROGRESS you amazing quilters!
Today we’re moving on to the background. We’ll focus on cutting the background triangles, background strips and borders.
BTW, I’m rolling out a new “day” of Festive Trees every day except Sundays.
Here we go!
Today, you’ll cut your background triangles, strips and borders.
T’is the season…you can play along or watch and come back to this later after loads of holiday merriment.
HOW THE MERRY MODERN TRIANGLES QUILT ALONG WORKS
For the next 2 weeks I’ll be rolling out a new “day” of Festive Trees every day except Sundays.
Officially, I’ll be sharing a reimagining of the “Isosceles Sampler” on page 101 of Modern Triangle Quilts. But, hey… the world is your oyster so we’ll be sharing LOADS of creative member makes!
Make Modern Triangles members have access to the coloring page, instructions and downloads or quilt along. Since, we’re working from the Modern Triangle Quilts book I’ve made each relevant page temporarily available in the downloads section.
*These posts features 12 seconds of Holiday music and then the body of the post will link to actual instructional videos.
If you have my book Make Modern Triangles you already have all of the triangles and trimming templates to make the project, too. Plus inspiration each day from the posts.
Jump for joy in your holiday fabric stash and whip up these cuties in no time.
I’m still on track… #progress!

MERRY MODERN TRIANGLES SHOUT OUTS
This quilt hung in the St. Cloud Heritage Quilters guild show in St. Cloud, MN in 2022. The quilt was pieced by Suzanne Kelly with exchange blocks made by Jean Imholte and Suzanne. A big shout out to them for reimagining the Isosceles sampler in bold, saturated colors. Thanks to Liz M. who sent in the photo. Gorgeous!
Thank you for being a part of the Make Modern Triangles program!
P.S. I’ll be back on Day 11 piecing rows. We’re sooo close, you guys!
P.S. MMT members, we’re working from the Modern Triangle Quilts book, so I’ve made each relevant page temporarily available in the downloads section. The links under the POSTS section take you to directly to the materials.
