Visit my online shop for Curlicue Creations quilt patterns, Island Batik fabric, and more.
As you can see, the blocks are all constructed with triangles in different sizes. No worries, it's not as tricky as it looks. It's actually really fun to sew!
The beautiful blues I used for this quilt came from the new Chickadee collection, plus blenders and a solid, all by Island Batik.
Disclaimer: The fabric used to make this quilt was given to me by Island Batik.
This quilt was inspired by walks along the seashore, watching the waves come in, cresting with white foam. Do you see it?
Triangle Twist is waiting for Spring to bloom here in North Carolina. This is my favorite spot for front-porch stitching.
I backed Triangle Twist with this beautiful blue blender fabric, also by Island Batik. The binding fabric matches the outer border fabric on the front of the quilt. I do matching binding whenever possible. I don't like my binding to compete for attention with the design of the quilt.
As you can see, I quilted a loopy meander in an allover design.
Finished Quilt Size: 57-1/2" x 69-1/2"

I encourage you to pick up a copy of this beautiful magazine today. If you sew a Triangle Twist quilt, I would love to see it. Please share a pic with me on Instagram @curlicuecreations.
