Triangle Charm Quilts

Mariah's fabulous  flannel
For Charlena's granddaughter
Linda and I teamed up for another great beginner class this past Friday and Saturday. Building on the success of the charm quilts we did last year, this design started with a pack of charms and one-and-a-quarter yards of background fabric. Once everyone learned easy ways to create triangle blocks, they were off and running. The great thing about triangle blocks is the multitude of design possibilities. It is such a versatile block to have in your repertoire! Here are a couple of designs students came up with: Mariah's fabulous flannel and Charlena's quilt for a young granddaughter. Hard to imagine they were made in the same class! I was so inspired by triangles I went home and designed a double triangle border for a round robin I am working on--can't show you the whole thing as it is a secret until the great reveal in April, but look at all those 2" square triangle blocks! Our quick methods turned them out in no time.
