Phew! Time does fly when you are having fun, doesn’t it? To answer all of your questions about this quilt, here is one final post. Ok, maybe not final, I won’t make any promises as I still want to make a third quilt for my soon-to-be baby girl. When you love making something this much, make lots of them, right?
Sprinkled in here are some images of my girls during this glorious Texas season. You can’t beat springtime in this part of the country. I eagerly look forward to seeing bluebonnets every year. And as tradition demands, I take the girls for a little photo shoot amongst the flowers. We also make a stop by the azaleas across the street for some pretty images. Nature truly is the most inspiring of all things. Ok, ok, enough with the flower talk.
Here’s to what you really want to know. Cut triangle sizes – 6″ (using an isosceles triangle ruler) , you will need 153 triangles, with some of these being the half triangles for the edges. Remember than when cutting the half triangles you will cut it either 1/4″ to the right or the left depending on the direction you want the half triangle to go. If you cut it exactly in the middle your triangle will be too short. The white border around is 7″. Finished quilt sizes are 58X60″ after I washed and dried them.
I used for these quilts all prints from Leah Duncan’s Meadow Collection, Picnic by River and Picnic in the Hills. For the Solids, I used Art Gallery’s Pure Elements in the following colors: Crystal Pink, Mirage Blue, Coral Reef, Cozumel Blue, Quartz Pink, Parisian Blue, Emerald, Tranquil Waters, Mandarin, and Snow for the border. All were purchased at Fat Quarter Shop. Ok, I think that’s all I needed to answer. Any more questions, email me. Meanwhile, enjoy these images!
