They had been sitting on my cutting table for a couple of weeks while I pondered what to do with them. They needed to become a quilt. It was just a matter of finding a few friends to complement them and a nice background fabric.
I had been wanting to play with sixty degree triangles for a while and this project was a perfect way to indulge. It was fun putting together the color palette. There were lots of auditions.
Decisions were made. A layout developed and then sewing began. There was just over a yard of hot pink so that determined the final size of the quilt top.
The finished quilt top is the perfect size for a sweet and sassy little girl. As much as I wanted to go quilting crazy with all that negative space, I settled for a simple triangle grid mimicking the piecing.
The quilting and the piecing were all completed with Aurifil 50 weight cotton thread. I think it is time for me to start investing in more large spools of Aurifil. I seem to be going through the small ones at a quick pace.
It needed a little something more and my dear friend Holley suggested adding a single triangle in the hot pink negative space. I love the way it turned out. It adds just the right extra something to the quilt.
Most of the time, my quilt backs are created from my fabric stash but this quilt deserved something special so I bought a bigger piece of Michal Miller fabric for the back. The back is just as fun as the front. The binding is a black with white dots for thoughts of snow in this hot pink world.
This quilt finishes at 33 inches by 40 inches.
