Modern triangle quilt.
When I usually think of a quilt, I imagine maroon, forest green, rose pink (and not the currently trendy shades!) and my dear old granny. For the most part, quilts are not modern, trendy, and current. Rather, they tend to look a little more country. Don't get me wrong, those quilts are really stunning and I appreciate that so much work goes into sewing one, but if you're like me and you prefer something a little more modern, then you too, will love THIS triangle quilt.
Of all the quilts I have ever worked on, this pattern is by far my favourite! It is nothing fancy or complicated, no elaborate designs, or intricate stitching. This quilt is just a number of triangles sewn together, but it is on point!
Although the pattern is simple, it is not for the faint-hearted; sewing this quilt requires precision, attention to detail, and patience. All the triangle pieces must be cut to exactly the same size and all seam allowances must be the same width. There is a lot of points at which seams need to be matched and this will be difficult to execute if you're quilting skills are even a little sloppy.
This quilt features a lovely coordinating shades of coral, mint, gray, and white. Solids paired with a couple of modern prints, and the whole ensemble is perfection. All the fabrics are 100% cotton, and the underside is lined with a 100% cotton dark gray flannel in a white polka dot pattern. Inside, the quilt has a 100% cotton batting, which makes this blanket really warm, but does not add bulk.
For a baby quilt, it is an incredibly generous size. Measuring at about 43" x 48", it is plenty big for babies (and toddlers) to sleep on/under, enjoy tummy time, or play on for years to come.
