Tuesday Triangles

Hooray! I've completed the top of my triangle quilt!

Here's some of my rows all together:


It was a lot easier for me to sew them together in rows diagonally rather than rows across to keep track of which way to iron my triangles and to keep them in the right order!

Here's the whole quilt sewn together and the sides trimmed:


It needs a good press before it gets layered to quilt, but before that I need to get a batting and a backing together! Thinking that I might do a pieced backing for this one, but not entirely sure yet! Need to stare at my (now-organized!) stash and see what matches well.

I've already decided that I want to bind it in either solid black or solid dark grey with the entirety of the quilt in prints. But I am SO happy with how it has turned out and that I get to knock one more quilt style off my "to-do" list.

Linking up with The Sassy Quilter's Triangle QAL, Fabric Tuesday, Linky Tuesday, and WIP Wednesday.
