I’ve been following along with Paula’s Triangle QAL over on her blog, The Sassy Quilter, for the past few weeks.
Our last assignment was to finish up those quilts! We had 2 weeks to finish up the quilting and binding for the final photo link-up.
My beer themed Triangle quilt is for my husband. Here in Oregon, we are surrounded by many great brew pubs, and I thought this quilt was the perfect choice for a “manly” quilt! You can read about the fabrics in this quilt here.
I decided to use straight-line quilting on my domestic machine by using my 1/4-inch foot and echoing the outside and inside edges of the triangles to create a large lattice effect. I used Aurifil 50 wt thread in a beautiful gold brown color (#2372) that perfectly complements the fabric.
In this photo, you can see the lattice/diamond quilting:
Here’s my hubby holding up his completed quilt. He picked the name, “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall” after our 8-year-old suggested it.
For the backing, I used up most of my left-over Brewsky fabric:
I’m really happy with how this quilt turned out, and really enjoyed following along with Paula and many other talented quilters during this quilt-along.
