Gypsy Rose - Triangle quilt

I think this one has a gypsy feel to it doesn't it?  Two finishes this week.  First was Hope Take Flight which you can read or see here and the second is the triangle quilt that's now called Gypsy Rose.  The quilt has a number of different Amy Butler fabrics, Hobbs Poly Down batting and the pantograph is Square Fold - Diagonal.  It was a tough panto but I wanted to give it a try.  The fabrics are so busy that I didn't think the quilting would show up but it did.  It's a bit distracting with the angles of the lines different from the angles of the triangles.  I think the problem is that it's really not a normal angle between the lines.  Like a 45 degree angle on top of a 90 degree angle would feel more at ease.  Well, I don't dislike it enough to rip it all out.  Nope, I'm just calling this one done and throwing it in the wash.




Hope everyone had a great Father's day.

Update - design pan added. Yep it's filled with HSTs ready to sew together.  I used the 3 in finished hst go die and placed the background right side to the colored right side.  All matched up just need to sew them together.  I hope there over 900 there, cuz that's how many I need!!  I didn't count I just cut.  Go check out all the linky parties, there more than one for each day, what fun!!

  3. I think it is very colorful and a nice looking quilt - I will be making a mini-tumbler quilt soon and this border idea is great for it. I need to remember it

  5. I really like how you floated the center of the whole quilt by adding the white-it gave it peace from the busy fabrics. I love the texture it has from the quilting too.

  7. As usual, your quilting makes it even more gorgeous! I love the border treatment as well. I can also identify with the bin full of triangles cut with the go cutter! *wink*

  8. I really like that the angles don't match as it kind of mixes all the pieces together, like a stew. And what are you going to make with 900 HSTs?

  9. looks great and I really love the whole design. I think that we are our own worst critics. I love it!! I have to say that each quilt I make or longarm, I learn something new about the process and that is what it is all about, right?
