I've been itching to make a quilt for a while now. And when I saw this rug at Anthropologie, I knew the pattern would work well as a quilt. I tested out the pattern with a simple wall art piece using colored triangles cut out of card stock.
Over the years, I've made quilts for all my brothers, Joel, Joash, and Josh and one for my dad. I decided it was about time I made one for my hubby. So, this quilt is for Lonnie.
You can see all the pictures, instructions and pattern over on eHow today. This really was much easier to make then it appears. It's all straight line sewing. My mother in law was in town last week, so we worked as a team to get this made in a couple of days. I sewed and she cut squares and triangles and ironed seams open. I'm so grateful for her help. I haven't decided where it's going to go yet, but instead of just making a throw size, I went big and made this to fit a queen sized bed. So, maybe it will go on our bed or even just hang on a wall as a graphic bold statement.
Here's a few other simple quilts I've made: Pairs in Squares, Chevron Baby Quilt, Hawaiian Quilt, and Whale Quilt.
