Hope you enjoy this quilt as much as I do! It’s versatile enough to be perfect for sewing some of your precious stash fabrics, scraps, or like mine: showcasing pretty Zip Stripes and Ombre Bloom fabrics.
There’s nothing more fun that trying out a new shape or technique to grow our quilting repertoire and keep things interesting. 60* triangles are not super common in quilting, but they are a really fun shape to play with! They are easy to size up and down when you use an acrylic template (Get yours <here>). You can change up the layout for a variety of looks or to build other shapes like diamonds and hexagons. Yes, I am pretty smitten with this cute little shape!
When the new Zip Stripes and Ombre Bloom (both by Moda) fabrics arrived here in the shop, I couldn’t resist whipping something up. These fabrics are so beautiful! The hard decision is going to be which of those stripe colors to use when I bind the finished quilt?
This one is simple and colorful with the alternating triangles of stripes and not-quite-solid Ombre Bloom prints. Of course, you could also use a selection of your favorite prints or solids and sew them up in a more random arrangement. This would also be great for busting some scraps, you only need a 6″ square for each triangle.
You’ll need a 60* triangle ruler template (get one here). It’s all pieced with Aurifil thread (-: . It’s easy to size this up or down to your needs by making more or fewer triangles. This one is nine rows of 11 triangles.
Video includes all the how-to you need to make one of your own! I hope you’ll try this fun shape.
