    How to - Blue and white traingle quilt


    I posted a picture of this quilt in the Show and tell section and a few people asked which pattern it was from. I made it up myself so here's how I did it.....
    • Choose 5 fabrics that tone from dark to light. I went for blue and white because of the room I was making it for but I'm sure it would look really good in black and white.
    • Cut 2" strips from each fabric.
    • Sew the strips together along the long edges with a quarter inch seam going from dark to light:[attachment=7:2srfhiq3]strips.jpg[/attachment:2srfhiq3]

    • You should now have a stack of triangles with dark bases and a stack with light bases: [attachment=3:2srfhiq3]cut triangles.jpg[/attachment:2srfhiq3]
    • Sew the dark triangles into strips as long as you want and then do the same with the light triangles: [attachment=2:2srfhiq3]sewn strips.jpg[/attachment:2srfhiq3]
    • Sew the strips together alternating dark and light and then trim the top and bottom a quarter inch wider than the points:

    • Add any borders you want and that's it!


    That's the first time I've tried to explain a quilt to anyone so if anything doesn't make sense, or you have any questions, just ask

              Thanks for the tut. That looks so much more complicated than it turns out. This would be pretty in rainbow colors for a baby quilt.

                          I can't see the pictures. I wonder why? It seems that the others who replied could. ?????
