    Re: How to - Blue and white traingle quilt

    I've found the pictures so I thought I would post them again. Here goes!
    • 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:






    • You should now have a stack of triangles with dark bases and a stack with light bases:



    • Sew the dark triangles into strips as long as you want and then do the same with the light triangles:



    • 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!

            Re: How to - Blue and white traingle quilt

            I just found this thread and I'm wondering, when you make the triangles you seem to make a flattened top point by not putting the top of the triangle even with the fabric but rather a smidge above the top. Is there a reason for that?

              That's just the way my triangle ruler worked. It means that when you take the seams off the sides you don't end up with a lot of spare fabric at the top.
