|Yvonne's Triangle Transparency - LOVE!!!|
|Worth the wait? :)|
|Close up of quilting. The texture on this quilt is amazing! I used wool batting - even with quilting this dense, the quilt is still soft!|
|Another close up of the quilting. I did trapunto (a first for me) in the dark triangles. LOVE that extra pop!|
|And one more at an angle. Love this shot with the blue of the pool next to it :)|
Fabric used (I've given as much info as there was on the salvage and bolt):
Background - Timeless Treasures Sketch in gray (Sketch is quickly becoming my absolute all time favorite background fabric!).
Light Purple - Kate Knight for Quilting Treasures
Light Blue - Salty Sand by Alexander Henry
Medium Purple - Scratch, Purple by
Medium Blue - Graffiti by Andover
Dark Purple - Painter's Canvas
Dark Blue -Essentials by Wilmintong
Batting - Quilter's Dream Wool
Quilt size: The flimsy was exactly 60" x 60" as the pattern indicated it should be :) After quilting and washing the size is now 57 1/4" x 57 1/4" - I really thought there would be more shrinkage due to the density of the quilting!
Threads - I forgot to put this in my quilting post. I used Glide (40 wt) for the gray and in the bobbin for the entire quilt. All of the colors are Aurifil, some 50 wt, some 40 wt, and the light blue is 28 wt. I used 20 bobbins. . .
Time spent: I didn't count hours methodically. The blocks were sewn in an afternoon. We then played around with layout for a couple of days. Sewing the four blocks together took about 30 minutes. How many hours in the quilting? My best guess is not a very good one. More than 50 hrs, less than 75 hrs.
I give this pattern two thumbs up, and two big toes!! ;) Seriously, if you have ever wanted to play with transparency, this is the pattern for you! I really think this pattern will appeal to the quilter that doesn't follow patterns to the quilter that wants every detail. There are so many ways to make this quilt all your own!
Here's the 411 (how long has it been since you hear that??? LOL) on where to find the other quilts on the hop and info on where you can buy the pattern and make a Triangle Transparency quilt all your own!
My advice? Go get this pattern! Thank you, Yvonne for allowing me to be a tester for this awesome pattern!
Linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish It Up Friday. Check out the great projects people have finished this week!
Until next time, keep on quilting!
