Big red triangle quilt is done! It began at the Stitch Gathering where Fiona of Poppy Makes gave a class on this quilt and is the largest quilt I have made which is why it is sideways here...
The triangles section is made from a jelly roll of Joel Dewberry's Knotting Hill combined with triangles of natural seeded Klona cotton. I decided to add sashing in more Klona in red - I absolutely love this colour, completely outside my normal comfort zone and can't wait to use it again.
I wondered how the red quilting would look against the trusty Ikea backing and I like the effect although you can see how the quality of my stitching varied, most wildly when I was watching The Bridge at the same time. You can see the acqua binding too - I loved the red/acqua combination so much I decided to go for an unashamedly hand sewn look on the back in the same red Aurifil.
The family helped try to get a good photo - see my noble husband leaning into the arctic blast while Thing 2 takes the shot.
Thing 1 also acted as photographer while I balanced precariously on a rock trying to unfurl the quilt in the wind.
The shots I took down there were only made possible by my little helper who hid in the folds and held on tight so that it didn't blow in.
It is her quilt and was such a labour of love that if it had blown in I probably would have had to go in after it!
