FF: Triangle Wall Quilt--DONE!
I finished this bad boy a couple of weeks ago, but kept forgetting to snap photos! (Shame on me!) Isn't she lovely?
This mini quilt top has been hanging around for several months, begging to be loved, but I ignored its pleas. I like to think I'm a nice person when it comes to my quilty projects, but I had no idea how to quilt this, and since I knew it would be hanging on my wall, I wanted to make sure I was pleased with the end result.
I went back and forth with straight line quilting, maybe some fun FMQ in the negative space, and towards the end, I really believed I'd just hand quilt it in fun oranges and pinks and yellows but couldn't seem to find the right perle cottons when I was looking for them. I'm choosing to believe that was destiny, and in the end, I slapped a little more charcoal Kona on the edges and stapled it to a wooden canvas frame. It now sits on what was a particularly boring wall near my front door, and every time I see it, it makes me smile.
The quilt top came about when I had some oddly shaped triangular leftovers from a baby shower bunting I pieced. I bordered it with Kona charcoal, and I'm thrilled its done! Hooray!
I'm linking up with TGIFF, this week hosted by Quokka Quilts, and Finish It Up Fridays at Crazy Mom Quilts.
