No Name Triangle...done & done!

I cut this little pile of Chicopee last fall thinking I would have a snuggly quilt in short order..
Well, it was stuck on my design wall off and on since then!
No progress!!
I finally bit the proverbial bullet and put it together, not really feeling much love for it.
After a quilting glitch, and some ripping..it's done!
I zoomed out this morning before yet another snow storm started up and snapped a few photos.

dusted the snow off the poor baby, and took a couple indoor shots!
I quilted off centre circles with Aurifil 28wt in red #2250 using the walking foot.
Some curvy looking things along the outer border with the FMQ foot.
Binding is a crosshatch with one small piece of the Chicopee.
The back is really minimal, with only a few triangles, and the rest is Kona Coal.
I love how the circles look on the back!
It's not really all that big at 51"x 55"
I sure am happy to have this one done.:-) :-)
 Maybe I should give it a real name now! LOL!
...probably won't
...it will always be no name to me!

Here is a little something to sum up our weather...

 It sure made me chuckle...
because it's so true!!

I think it looks really good !! And I love the quilting :)

Yesterday was one of those day when you think winter is over. And today, it was -5°C and it was snowing just a little bit. Summer, I'm ready for you !!

I think the quilt is gorgeous and the quilting and back really add a lot to the finished product. Sometimes I think it is a good to have a project that you have to dig your way out of :)

Sometimes people say that the only good thing about living in LA is the weather, but the weather makes living here totally worth it!

Beautiful!

I like to divide up winter, so that there is the part where it isn't so cold and you still care enough to wear a fashionable winter coat,and that part where you just try to stay warm.

Dianne Neale said...

I looks lovely, but I can't imagine lining up all those points. Nightmare!

Benta AtSLIKstitches said...

Now do you feel the love? I do, I think it's awesome!

Janine said...

Your quilt looks fab! I think it deserves a name now. And your seasons pie chart made me smile - so true here as well :)

CitricSugar said...

It's so pretty, Patti!! Very "modern" by all definitions. :-)

And that seasons thing made me laugh. We've had melt and then snow for so long…. My father's decorative deer were starting to pop out from the snow a bit but now, they're buried again...

Love this quilt. I'm hoping to put together a triangle quilt for the Solids Bee, so I'm stalking some beauties.
