trendy triangles-a completed quilt

Welcome to finish it up Friday!

I spent a lot of time on my sewing machine this week and it was good! My trendy triangles quilt is now complete!
This one has been in progress for awhile, as I mentioned in my last post. A few summers ago, my friend Holly gave me the triangle scraps, which were leftovers from a quilt that she was making from cotton + steel's very first fabric collection. I love the combination of the bright triangles with a variety of low volume prints.
For the quilting, I free motion quilted a simple loopy pattern all over. I machine bound it for a quick and durable finish. I love this print for binding! In fact, I made bias binding for two quilts out this same fabric yesterday. (The print is Citrus, by another point of view for Windham fabrics.)
This quilt has such a beautiful texture already...and it hasn't even been washed yet!
The pattern is based on Cheryl's Nap Like an Egyptian quilt, which is found in Sunday Morning Quilts. It finishes at about 52" x 66". It's scrap project # 183.

With this finish, my WIP list is now down to 10! I'm so excited I could (almost) do cartwheels!

Now it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thank you for joining me for finish it up Friday!

Oh isn't it beautiful! I love the way it shows off some seriously beautiful fabric, and the peek of the turquoise back is a great foil to the low volume on the front :)

I love this! No really. Love love love. Those scrappy triangles in the center of each block really pop against the low volume background. I guess this means having to make one....
Why is it that your WIP finishes become starters for the rest of us?
