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.
