Triangle Tango Finish

"Triangle Tango" is a pattern by Missouri Star Quilt Company, or you can see it made on Youtube as the "Falling Triangles" quilt. But quite honestly, after seeing the online picture of it, I created it in EQ7.

My version makes 8" blocks which are just half-square triangles in an Attic Windows setting. My quilt is 62" X 74".


Isn't this a pretty spot? It's at the back of the sales office building in Brownwood, a few miles from my house.

I didn't want to spend hours custom quilting this one, so I used a blue wash-out marker to section off three areas. Then, in each of those areas I quilted a different all over design.
Hooked swirls.

Triple paisleys. 

Clamshells.

The sections are divided by circles that I quilted with the aid of a 1/8"-thick acrylic circle ruler. These aren't meant for ruler work quilting, so what I did in this video is a "no-no." It could have been disastrous if the ruler foot hopped up over the ruler.

Another pretty finish, I think, with this yellow mini pearl bracelet binding.

I'm trying to get half-square triangles out of my system. Can you tell? Linda

  3. Bright and happy, and a great selection for the colorful triangles! I don't think we'll ever get half-square triangles out of our systems!! They make such fun quilts and are full of surprises.

  11. I really like this one! The colors - the movement.
    I am going to try dividing my next quilt in sections. I get bored using the same all over design throughout the quilt but don't want to take the time to custom quilt everything. I think this is the perfect way to do it.
