Triangles in the Wild

It’s a finish! The Marsala Triangles quilt top I originally made for the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year challenge has joined the pile of useful quilts. To tell the truth, I finished it a while ago but I wasn’t sure whether the workmanship on the quilting was up to scratch.

Actually, I am sure – it’s not, so there aren’t any revealing close-ups, just close enough so you can see I tried an interesting idea of doing wonky spirals inside the triangular shapes.

Once in the middle, I wasn’t really sure how to get out so sort of followed the line back and then attempted to follow the ditch on to the next section. That’s pretty much where I came unstuck and it turned into a “dog-bed quilt”. No matter, it is still a soft, warm and cuddly quilt and, if I don’t put my glasses on when I look at it, I’m proud of it and I love it.

And the photo setting? A graffiti wall behind the local Auto-tune franchise and part of a carpark for the church. It has a theme of cars with flame-spitting exhaust pipes and the like and is one of several graffiti walls near home. How lucky is that?

I’m linking up to Sew Cute Tuesday at Blossom Heart Quilts and My Quilt Infatuation for Needle and Thread Thursday.

My Quilt Infatuation


  1. Finished is better than perfect and once I put the binding on its always perfect. That's something a Guild member and mentor told me and I have taken it for my motto. Your quilt is lovely.

  2. I think this is a great little quilt. It looks perfect for snuggling up with a good book. I love the graffiti wall, it makes for a very interesting backdrop. Curious, how did you get it to stay on the wall?

  3. What a great location for a quilt photo shoot! Would have loved to have seen closer to the quilting ..... other people's opinions may just surprise you!

  4. Fabulous quilt and photo shoot! Way to go!

  5. Very cool looking quilt and I love the photography!

  6. Your quilt looks great. Also photo is cool :)
