I feel like you’ve heard this one before…
My Triangle Quilt Along Quilt is STILL a work in progress. The good news (for me) is that I FINALLY decided how long my rows would be, and all 18 of my rows are FINISHED!
Paula’s original instructions called for 12 rows with 17 triangles per row. But I don’t always follow instructions, and this ‘little’ quilt of mine has grown into quite a beast. It’s 18 rows long and 31 triangles wide. It’s a big bad mamma jamma!
I could have easily gone wider, but I’m going to use a 108″ backing for it, so I decided to stop at 31 wide. That, and the fact that I was quickly running out of available space on the long arm rollers! And I had to stop sometime, right? The crazy thing is that I have enough triangles that I could easily add another couple of rows, but I’m just saying NO.
I got as far as pressing rows 0 and 1 and sewing them together tonight. Here are some points that I’m rather proud of
There are other points I’m NOT proud of, but hey, none of my quilts are perfect. And this was my first set of rows – I’ll get the hang of it, and they’ll look better as I go along (I hope).
I decided that was enough for tonight, but I have everything ready to go for tomorrow – all of my pairs of rows are stacked and ready to be pressed and pinned this week. With any luck I’ll be done with it Saturday or Sunday.
Hopefully next week I can post about a DIFFERENT WIP. 🙂
I absolutely LOVE this quilt. The fabrics are awesome!
Thank you, Sarah! Thanks for stopping by!
This is absolutely beautiful! I did my first triangle quilt, not too long ago and absolutely loved it once I got the hang of it! None of my quilts are perfect either…. and I am perfectly ok with that 🙂

Hi Tanyia – thanks for stopping by! I love the colors in your triangle quilt!
Oh, that is a big one! Looks amazing though. I think making the rows is the longest part. They go together pretty quick. Beautiful points too! You think with so many that you would notice when they are off, but I think its a good distraction and you don’t notice if a few aren’t perfect:)
It IS a big one. That darn husband of mine bought me a full set of FQs TWICE so I could add to this quilt…he really wanted it to be bigger, and he’s getting it bigger. 🙂
I love it! Can’t wait to see it finished!
Me either! 😉
wow she’s a big one! well done and getting your points (most of them!) nicely done 🙂 I think my biggest problem is that some fabric seems to stretch/give alot? Anyhoos. cant wait to see yours done!
i just did the 12×17, and was thinking to make a larger one!
how big did your final project end up to be? twin? queen? in between?
the colors are fantastic!
The ‘finished’ post is here:
The finished size is 93.5×96″ and it fits nicely on our KING size bed. It’s a big one! 🙂
awesome! i will check that out 🙂
