This mini, modern and quite merry quilt along offers you 12 Days of Festive Trees made the modern triangle way.
This is a little triangle treat from me to you! Enjoy!

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.
We’re working from the Modern Triangle Quilts book. I’ve made each relevant page temporarily available in the downloads section.
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! Add a tree trunk or a star if you’d like. Fill in the neutral triangles with more modern triangles… Have a play!
Make Modern Triangles members, you can play along or watch along and come back to this later. Visit this post for ALL the details and a fun little video I put together!
It was such a delight to put that video together. I’m probably overselling it, but it was fun!
Let me know what you think! And let’s have a little holiday fun!
