Quilting Triangles II

I have managed to get back to my “It takes a Village” quilt. It has in total Forty-four (44) 4″ triangles. I had previously posted two of the quilting designs I was using for my triangles. Again, using my walking foot, here is the third…

Diamonds within:
I love the simplicity of this design, where you can see the equilateral triangles and then the intersecting lines to form a diamond. I did do some initial marking for this block. I marked the 2” center line, and on the two sides I marked the 2″ height mark for the intersecting lines. These marks are used as rough guides to evenly separate the sections.

Quilting Triangles

I have a project I am working on at the moment, that originally, I thought I could leave the triangles unquilted (46 of them). Well, the linen triangles are a little too puffy for my liking and I really need to quilt them.

That started me on this path:

  1. Using Angela Walters Shape by Shape book to find inspiration on how to quilt these triangles. I love this book.
  2. The designs had to be done with my walking foot. I am determined that I don’t need to change my foot on my machine for just these triangles.

These are the quilting patterns, I came up with for my 4″ triangles. Both of the designs are similar to Angela’s designs for Triangle 1 and 7 but I added some more detail in them to make them my own.

Nested Pyramids:
This is very similar to Angela’s example (Triangle 7), but I can not help myself….Star Trek badge ;-). I did do some initial marking for this block. I marked the 2 ” center line, and then along that line from the top, I marked 3 lines at a 1″ spacing. These marks are used as rough guides to evenly separate the sections.

Crown Jewel:
Looks like the center piece of a tiara, right? I did do some initial marking for this block as well. I marked the 2 ” center at the bottom, and then along the sides I marked a 1″ spacing. These marks are used as rough guides to evenly separate the sections.
