Check out this AMAZING Triangle Jitters Quilt! It makes me giddy just looking at it. The pattern is from Suzy Quilts and is a crazy fast sew! I happened to have these original Cotton & Steel fabrics laying around and new it would look so fun!
Original Cotton and Steel
I can’t even tell you where I scored these Dottie (Goldilocks and Jean Jacket) and Freshly Picked fabric but I think there are some still circulating around on Etsy and other online retailers…who knows maybe even your local quilt shop has some one their shelf? The closest fabric I found to match the background fabric I used is from Andover and it’s called Rainbow Sprinkles. The print is miniature and reads more as a neutral and is beautiful. Once again all of this was from my stash and purchased a while ago – of course I tossed the selvage before writing this blog (darn me!).
For the binding I had remaining yardage of the Jean Jacket Dottie fabric and thought that would be a lovely frame around the quilt. It would also be a high contrast to the backing fabric that I used. If I used the remaining yardage of the goldilocks color I think it would’ve clashed with the pink backing.
For the backing, I knew I wanted to keep it simple and pull out the pink from the centers of the geometric floral on the quilt top. Ruby Star Society has a lovely basics line called Spark and the metallic sparks felt like the perfect understatement for this backing.
Have I mentioned how much I love long arm quilting? For this fun quilt I wanted to play off the fun fabrics and keep things simple. I wanted to keep this quilt more whimsical and I thought the mini scallops would be perfect. I love quilting timeless pieces that are fresh and fun.
