Bright Triangles - A Finished Quilt

 My Bright Triangles quilt is done. I love all the bright happy colors, and how the basic half square triangle block, combined with the white, allows each print to pop.
As I mentioned in my last post, I was unsure about what I was going to do with this quilt.  So now, after much internal debate, I have decided that I will be listing this quilt, along with some others, in my Etsy shop.  I am hoping that someone will love this quilt as much as I do and want to purchase it.  As for my sister's friend that is having a baby this winter, my sister and I have decided to go together and pick out some prints special for the new baby, that match the nursery.
When quilting this, I simply echoed each triangle.  It was a little time consuming, but I love the effect it gave the quilt after I took it out of the dryer.  The back is a single novelty print that I picked up at my local quilt shop.  It is fun and colorful and I think it compliments the front perfectly.  But I have to admit, I was slightly concerned when I washed this because red and white don't normally mix well in the washing machine.  Thankfully, Shout Color Catcher is an awesome product and if you have never used it before I highly recommend doing so.  
Quilt Details:
Finished Quilt Measurements: 40" x 50"
Block and Piecing: 63 - 6 1/2" HST, in a 7 x 9 layout
Quilting: Straight line quilting, echoing each triangle 

I will be linking this up to Sew Modern Monday, Fabric Tuesday, and some of these other great linky parties.
