Merry Modern Triangles – 12 Days of Festive Trees is officially on Day 3.
Okay…*phew* these stripey guys take a bit longer than those easy Day 2 triangles. So, it’ll be nice to have them out of the way!
Grab some jammies and get cozy, because we’re doing this!
HOW THE Merry Modern Triangles QUILT ALONG WORKS
For the next 2 weeks I’ll be rolling out a new “day” of Festive Trees, December 6th – 19th. (I won’t send any on 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 here.
Since, we’re working from the Modern Triangle Quilts book. I’ve made each relevant page temporarily available in the downloads section.
If you’re not a member, you can play along with my book, Modern Triangle Quilts, where you’ll find the triangles and trimming templates.
Jump for joy in your holiday fabric stash and whip up these cuties in no time.

What I made for Day 3:
How to add your own twist
I’ve designed a Merry Modern Triangles wall hanging, however, you can always take my designs in a new direction! You could…
- Make as little as one triangle to create something like a mug rug
- Make a handful of triangles to create placemats
- Make a handful to create a table runner
- Make the full wall hanging
- Or…? Go big and add your own twist design to the project.
On Day 9, I’ll have a new isosceles design for you. However, this would be a great opportunity to add in a triangle of your own design!
Merry Modern Triangles Design options
There’s plenty of room for you to add your own touch! Annette H.’s stripey trees sure stand out when laid out in a circle. Have a play!
Here’s Lonnie W.’s table runner – I love how the striped trees give the runner holiday pop!
Thank you for being a part of the Make Modern Triangles program!
P.S. Tomorrow I’ll be back with Day 4 – Isosceles Blocks #4 and #6
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.
