Just Tri It! Quilt for Pellon Projects

Just Tri It! Quilt for Pellon® Projects

Last fall, I had the pleasure of connecting with Pellon® Projects and planning this lovely (if I must say so myself) quilt. It’s so exciting to finally see the finished product and free tutorial! And, I’m so pleased to be named a Pellon® Projects Designer!

The quilt is super easy-to-make and features half-square triangles cut in sets of four. Because the pattern is completely random, it’s a quick project that’s perfect for the beginning quilter. This was only my second completed quilt! You can do this!

The solids that make up the quilt top are all from the Pure Elements collection by Art Gallery Fabrics, and the back is Squared Elements by Art Gallery Fabrics in Noir. These are my absolute fabric quilting cottons to work with – so soft and smooth, and the drape is fabulous. It’s almost like a cross between a high-quality quilting cotton and voile. And the Squared Elements backing looks so perfect with the simple, saturated solids.

These photos were taken in January in Bishop, California. I just love the contrast of the geometric shapes against the natural, mountain terrain. I had originally planned for this quilt to go on my daughter’s bed, but we take it out for picnics all the time. Its bright colors make me so happy on a sunny day, and it’s quite the conversation starter on playdates.

I chose the very simple straight-line quilting method to finish the quilt, and I used my Janome MC6500 for all the stitching.
