Modern Quilt Guild Riley Blake Challenge

This has been finished for some time, actually (as you might have guessed based on the SNOW on the ground in the photos!), but I’m just now getting around to posting about it.

This quilt, which I’m calling “Twisted Triangles” was my entry into the Modern Quilt Guild‘s Riley Blake Challenge. Seriously, I don’t know how it didn’t win the prize, as it is clearly awesome!

In all honesty, there were innumerable stand-out entries. I was blown away by all the talent displayed and it was really fascinating to see how the same fabrics inspired such a wide array of projects.

I was amused by the process of making this quilt in particular:

1. Whip out rotary cutter and slice up pretty fabric.

2. Sew fabric back together in a triangle.

3. Slice through the fabric I just finished sewing.

4. Insert white strip and sew back together again.

5. Repeat.

It just seemed completely counterintuitive to cut up something I had just sewed together!

The back is a Riley Blake print I had purchased for another project and ended up not using, along with some coordinating solids.

I attempted to repeat the twisting triangles in the quilting.

Even though though this isn’t a recent finish, I’m sharing at Crazy Mom Quilts. Lots of great projects linked; go check them out!

    I know you posted this a long time ago, but I just happened upon it today. This quilt is just stunning, and I love how you maintained the triangles in the quilting.
