Ombre Triangles

My daughters best friend is marring my daughters husbands twin brother.  (Did you follow that?)

So, of course, I HAD to make her a quilt!

Jazmin's favorite color is purple :)

I have had this cut of fabric for a few years.  It is a single piece with all 6 shades of purple printed on it.  I used a 60 degree triangle ruler to cut out the triangles.  I LOVE sewing with them.  They behave just like squares, pretty much ;)

As per tradition, I had to add in some special words in the quilting just for them.

Jazmin also loves turquoise with her lovely lavenders.

It is such a happy quilt for the lovebirds!

For the backing I used some wild and AWESOME fabric from April's 1970 basement stash!

Here are some pictures of the creation process...


  1. Ok, I hope I'm not leaving a comment twice...... it disappeared! I love this quilt, it is so pretty! I have a 60 degree triangle for my Accuquilt...... I think it's time to use it! Great job!

  2. visiting from crazy mum quilts. What an amazing wedding present

  3. I love the quilt. Purple is also my favorite color also. She should be very happy with the quilt.

  4. Oooh, love the ombre. It's beautiful! :)

  5. This is such a beautiful quilt. I love the colors you chose. I am sure that she will love it!

  6. 60 degree triangle quolts are one of my favorite to make. This one is especially lovely!

  7. Beautiful! I'm making a triangle quilt now, but it's not equilateral since I don't have that size template. That size template is now on my list!

  8. Awesomeness! Yes, I did follow, although I had a hard time translating it into Hungarian to DF, I couldn't remember the word Son In Law :))) The quilt came out gorgeous, and I really love the quilting you did!

  9. What a gorgeous quilt in shades of purple! Love the quilting too!


Thanks for leaving your thoughts! I LOVE to hear from you :) I cherish every word :) I read ALL of your comments and try to reply to every single one.... but it sometimes takes me a few days xoxo
