Quilted and binding started

I quilted the triangle challenge quilt and have started with the binding. I really like the finished look.

Triangle Challenge

I loved Pat Sloan's latest Triangle challenge and decided to do it! First I ordered the book online and then started. I made it one block longer and wider for a 4x4 layout. I love it but it made the flying geese not the right size. I worked out if I took off the one inch border, the sides worked perfectly but not the top and bottom. I really didn't want to change geese size and didn't like any options I came up with so I decided to leave it. I think with black binding will look good. I have started quilting but no way it will be quilted before challenge over.
 The lighting is terrible but I took the photo when it was raining non stop for the day.

Testing

I love Eden by Tula Pink. I bought a fat quarter bundle in the Amethyst colour way from the fat quarter shop. Then I bought a fat quarter bundle of all fabric from massdrop. I am planning to make my first queen size quilt. I have ordered 1 yard of this crouching tiger fabric from connecting threads so I figured I could experiment with quilt blocks. I love this. The block finishes at 16 inches and the centre is large enough to feature the tiger.

Triangle challenge

I have finished the middle of my quilt for Pat Sloan's triangle challenge and love how it looks.  I added an extra block to the rows and added an extra row so it should the right size for a lap quilt once I add the borders.

Triangle Challenge

I have decided to join Pat Sloan's second triangle challenge. I love the Dandoy Delight pattern and have decided to try a bigger 4 x 4 version using some of my Australian fabrics. There is a very good chance I will not make the deadline but it is worth a shot.

Not quite finished

I thought this was a finish but have decided it is not. The pattern is from the across the sea quiltalong. I added extra blocks so I thought this was a finish. Now I have had some time to look at it, I think I will add the border after all.

I used Kate Spain Horizon which is gorgeous as all Kate Spain fabric is.
