Finally I am able to properly reveal my Citrus Triangle Quilt and I am entering it in to the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side. Be sure to pop over and see all the other entries - it truly is a feast for the eyes!
As part of the Triangle Quilt Along with The Sassy Quilter, I managed to complete make my 'Citrus Triangle' quilt within the time frame of the quilt-along, despite starting a tiny bit late! For my quilt, I pulled a stack of greens, greys and low volume whites to make my equilateral triangles with. I am on a fabric fast so I used what I had in my stash. I LOVE how it turned out!! I am a green-fabric-kind-of-person -- can you tell!!?
For the binding, I went with what I had in the house (grey with white dots) but decided to add just a touch of the teal as you can see in the picture above and just below. I am so glad I did because it would have been a rather green/grey/white quilt other wise!! I used some chevrons to back it with. Again, this is what I had in my stash.
This outdoor photo (below) does not do this quilt justice as it was rather sunny when I took the photo so my greens are looking a little pale here. However, I include this picture because it shows the circular quilting that I did on the quilt. I love the effect and can't wait to wash it to see how it crinkles up!
Here is the initial pull of fabric inspiration for my quilt. Some of these didn't make the final quilt and I did add a few more to make my quilt bigger. Such a yummy stack of fabric.
Size: 53.5 x 74 inches
