Another Small Quilt

When I was trying to figure out what to take on my trip for hand work,  I decided to make a small quilt just so I could bind it! I went to my Pinterest boards and chose to recreate a vintage doll quilt I had pinned. I cut my triangles from scraps.

And decided on a layout.

I used this die.

I sewed my rows together and ended up with this.

A bit of an odd shape for a quilt, but hang in with me. Time for some drastic measures.

Yep, I cut it in half. Then I switched the pieces around.

And sewed it back together. No waste!

Then came quilting.

Here is the back. It is a very old Kaye England print.

I chose this because it matched a piece of leftover binding I had that was just the right size.

Here are some finish pics. 

Only a few days left of my trip. I am soaking up all the sun I can! I understand the kids are enjoying a snow day back home!

    Eeee, that turned out lovely, and I loved the tip about cutting it in half for a no-waste finish. I’ve done that with braid and Seminole piecing, but never equilateral triangles. Neat trick! 🙂
