Hexy Triangle Quilt

by Julie Hirt

I don’t really know what to call this quilt.  It’s a 60 degree triangle hexagon jelly roll quilt?  I made this from a Salt Air jelly roll by Cosmo Cricket for Moda by sewing 3 strips together.  Then cut out 60 degree equilateral triangles and sewed them into hexagons.  Measures 60″ x 64″.

Started working on it last fall then completely lost interest. My dogs kept trampling through my layout and I was just super frustrated with the whole thing.  Then one glorious day a few weeks ago, my husband put up a design wall for me. WHAT! I was missing out! It’s not very tall because my craft room is in a dormer with angled walls, but jeeze Louise. So much easier than getting into fights with my little pups over floor space. That day I dragged out all of the pieces and blocks I had and got to work.

I tried something different than a stipple for the quilting. On the border (which is an old navy sheet!) I did some free motion waves.  Then straight line quilted in 2 directions to create a diamond pattern on the back.

My favorite thing about this quilt is actually the binding.  The only thing I would have done differently is make the white triangles navy, like the border and the back.

Now… I can get back to my Scrappy Trip Around the World!
