138

 This...


...and this...

...arrived together from the Fat Quarter Shop.

When I saw them together I knew they would make a fabulous quilt.

So I got out my 60° ruler and made some triangles with an unfinished height of 5 1/2", added in a few more of my own text fabrics as well as some Kona Bone, et voila.



For the quilting I chose stitch number 138 on my Bernina, elongated it out as far as it would go and then randomly quilted straight(ish) lines.



I like the effect it creates.


On the back, I tried to use up every last scrap of the off cuts and pieced them into the Kona Bone background.


And the binding. 
I could pretend I wanted to juxtapose the modern solids and urban text fabrics with the soft, floral binding thereby creating a dichotomy of polarising styles.


The truth is, it was the binding left over from this quilt


Linking to WIP Wednesday
 
 
I kind of thought it would go.

  14. Love it! My favorite quilting stitch on my (pretty old) Bernina 180 is #4 elongated way the heck out. it's a serpentine stitch and I call it "stitching in the vicinity of the ditch". I can go zoomy fast. I like the approach you took, sort of a meander/wander/random look - the more I look at it the more I want to try it! Love your color/pattern combination - really striking.

  35. Good fabric pull! Triangles are so hot right now, they might take over from hexies ... or are hexies taking over from triangles? I just can't keep up! I love that Comma fabric as well... I have it in the grey colour, but you're making me want some like yours. Jealous, much? Yes.
