Anyway, the pattern is a free one on Moda's website: The Ladies Stitching Club. It was published several years ago and I just loved the design. The pattern as written makes for a lot of fabric waste. In fact, there are directions for a second quilt using the cut-offs. I remember trying it and being unhappy with how much was wasted, especially since I didn't want a second quilt out of the same fabrics. I set it aside, knowing someday I'd be back to it.
On a whim, I bought several pieces from the Art Gallery line Indelible. This pattern immediately came to mind and I knew I could figure out a different way to piece it. And it worked out perfectly!
Here's how I did it:
I cut my triangles a bit larger than the original pattern. My strips were cut at 5 1/2". Then I used a 60 degree triangle ruler to cut all my triangles, both print and white. I cut white and solid-colored strips 1 1/2".
I sewed a 1 1/2" strip to one side of the triangle. The bottom edge is trimmed even with the bottom edge of the triangle (your 60 degree line on the ruler should match up with the edge of the triangle). The top of the strip is trimmed even with the top of the triangle also, which will be 5 1/2" from the bottom edge.
Line up your next triangle (60 degrees are great because they match right up!) and sew it on to complete the block.
Follow the pattern to make the white blocks with the colored strips in the same way. Be sure to make half the blocks going one direction and half going the other, just like the pattern!
I didn't make any special blocks for the ends. Just sewed on an extra triangle on each row and squared them off when the top was completed.
My straight line quilting zig zagged along parallel to the 1" strips...
This gorgeous print from Indelible is on the back and it's bound in Art Gallery's Squared Elements in gray. I seem to be using that print for bindings a lot lately!
Couldn't be happier with this quilt and we so enjoyed photographing it on this gorgeous day!!
I'm off on another retreat this week - bringing some smaller projects to work on. For some insta-pics be sure to follow me on Instagram! Have a great week!
