Thank you Smiley

The blocks were really fragile because of the triangles, I had to fight against the tendencies for the triangles to get mishapen.  I don't think I'll make another triangle quilt for a long time although I love love this one.

Thank you fiddle girl Smiley

I also forgot to say that I did a quilt sandwich rather than binding.  I wanted the edges to be clean and I thought it'd be faster which it turned out to not be.  Each of the strips were 1.5" so there was really a lot of piecing for a quilt that's only 42x48" so I thought that skipping traditional binding might be a small shortcut.

I named it this because the colors remind me of the painting not because it looks like it.

This is a triangle log cabin block done via paper piecing.  It's my first dabble in value fabric placement although it's not that well done.  I used up nearly all my blue scraps and had to swap with a friend for more dark blues.

It's a baby gift for my assistant.  Hmm, any questions?  Thanks for looking!

Smiley  I forced a deadline on myself (before the engagement photo session) and that pushed me to work hard on finishing the top.  I sent it off for the long arm quilting which was def the best way to get it finished without stress!

Thank you Smiley

I actually made our napkin rings, yo yo napkin rings, using the scraps of the quilt.  It was a pain to sew 125 of them but the guests thought it was very sentimental.

Ha Smiley  Thank you!

I'm not satisfied with the back.  I did it somewhat in a hurry because I wanted it finished before our engagement photos were taken.  I do love the fairy fabric though and the quilting pops a lot.

It's a bowtie pattern, very traditional pattern.  It's larger scale than you might find elsewhere though.

Here's a free pattern: http://quilting.about.com/od/quiltpatternsprojects/ig/Free-Quilt-Block-Patterns/Bow-Tie-Quilt-Block.htm

Be careful for directional prints if you want the center bow part to look square rather than two triangles.
