This is my Island Batik
Ambassador project for the Month of May. I'm calling it Triangle-A-Go-Go table runner.
For this month we were challenged to make a quilt featuring, you guessed it: Triangles! I do love triangles, and I had a great plan for this quilt. But....when I really sat down and started designing it, I changed my focus, and decided to make a table runner instead.
I pulled out the Graphix 10" precuts stack and hot pink stash builders rolls that I received in my January box. I love pink in my kitchen and these two colors really pop against each other. Oh yeah!
Next, I got out my Accuquilt
Go and the Morning Star BOB die and started cutting. I LOVE the Morning Star die and was so excited to have another opportunity to use it for Triangle Tricks. The shapes cut out so perfectly and fit together nicely with the dog ears automatically cut off by the die.
Here's one of the finished Morning Star blocks.
The table runner couldn't have come out cuter! Look how it matches the climbing roses on my front porch railing. Ah, Spring. Blooms everywhere.
I quilted the Triangle-A-Go-Go in an allover swirl design with pink Aurifil
Thread. It's color number 2530, if you're curious.
I pieced my backing with more of the pink stash builders. They're so useful! This was super easy to do and I love the way it looks.
The inside of my table runner features Hobbs
80/20 bleached cotton batting.
I used Schmetz
needles for all of the piecing and quilting. They're the best!
Here's a peek at the front and back together. I love all the pinks!
I used another pink in a slightly darker shade for the binding. This was also cut from the stash builders. The stash builders are 5" x width of fabric, so you can get two binding strips out of each one with no fabric waste. I love that.
