Merry Modern Triangles – 12 Days of Festive Trees is officially on Day 5.
Today we’ll sew up Blocks 9 and 11! These have a bit of angled piecing, so you’ll want to check out my videos below to see how I manage to sew the angles.
And more fussy cutting opportunities!
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 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.
If you have my book Make Modern Triangles you’ll 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.

What I made for Day 5:
I’ve designed a Merry Modern Triangles wall hanging, however, you can always take my designs in a new direction! You could…
- Make one triangle for 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!
Teresa used all prints except for the light green triangles – I’m loving the value contrast and fabric selection. See how block #11 red diamond pops out against the white?!
Elise T. used modern prints for her triangles and wowed us!
I’m amazed at the variety – mixing up the traditional and modern creates many options. You’ll hafta make more than one, right?!
Thank you for being a part of the Make Modern Triangles program!
P.S. I’ll be back with Day 6 with Isosceles Block #1 and some freezer paper piecing magic.
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.
