Striped Triangle Quilt

Striped Triangle Quilt

This is a very easy project. Don’t get too hung up on making the stripes perfectly rigid. They can wiggle a bit. The fabric behaves best if it is ironed dry when damp. This puts some of the stiffness back and makes it easy to sew the bias edges. Be careful not to tug on the seams as you ease them under the machine presser foot.

SIZL OF QUILT
The finished ijuilc will measure approximately 90in x 60in (228c:m x 152cm).

MATERIALS
Patchwork fabrics:
ВS01: 1 1\2 yd (1.4m) or 8 HQ
BS06: 1 ½ yd (1.4m) or 8 FQ
NSO1: 2/3 yd (60cm) or 3 FQ
NS09: 2/3 vd (60cm) or 3 FQ
AS01: ¾ vd (70cm) or 4 FQ
AS 10: l yd (90cm) or 5 FQ
AS21:7Ayd (60cm) or 3 FQ
Backing fabric:
NSD9: 4 ‘Ayd (3.9m)
Binding fabric:
NS09: 4 1/2 yd (60cm) or 3 FQ
Batting:
96 in x 84in (2-Hcm x 213cm)

PATCH SHAPES
I he quilt is made from right-angled triangles, template A.
CUTTING OUT
Template A: for 45in (114cm-) wide fabric, cut 9 strips of fabric 4 1/2 in (11.5cm) wide, with stripes running along the length of the strip. I divide each strip into patches. Each FQ will give you 12 patches.
Cut 96 in BS01 and BS06. cut 34 in NS01 and NS09. cut 44 in AS0I, 52 in AS10 and cut 36 in AS2I Bias binding: cut 9yd (8.2m) 2 in (5cm) wide in NS09.
Backing: cut 1 piece 95 in x 45 in (241cm x 114cm) and 2 piece- 48 in * 22 in (123cm x 56cm) in NS09 Batting: cut 1 piece 96 in x 66 in (244cm x 168cm).
MAKING THE BLOCKS
There are five different block combinations: for block A use 2 patches of ASOl and AS21. block В use 2 patch» of BSOI and BS06: block С Use 2 patches of NS01 and NS09; block D use 2 patches of AS01 and AS21: block E use 2 patches of AS01 and AS10.
Using ¼ in (6 mm) seam allowance, make up 7-A blocks, 48-B blocks. 15-C blocks. 11-1) blocks and 15-F. blocks, following the block assembly diagrams.
ASSEMBLING TH1 BLOCKS
Arrange the96 blocks into 12 rows of 8 blocks following the quill assembly diagram. Join the blocks together into rows, then join the rows together to form the quill top.

FINISHING THE QUILT
Press the assembled quilt lop. Seam the 3 backing pieces together with ‘/mi (1,25cm) seam allowance to form 1 piece measuring approximately %m x 66in (244cm x I6Ncm). Layer the quilt top. batting, and backing, and baste together. Stitth-in-rhe-ditch diagonally across the center of each block, but not around the sides, then mm the quilt edges and attach the binding.
