This entry is the sequel to my experience with sewing triangles—a whole quilt only of triangles—Confetti Forest. I already described how I never actually cut any triangles but diamonds instead. After that, I had to sew these diamonds into diagonal rows.
Direction played and important role. I didn’t want any triangles with the same or similar print to meet. And always: dark fabric top, light fabric bottom. That’s why I arranged each and every row before I ever started sewing—and numbered them.
Starting with only two diamonds in a row, next row with three, then four, and so on. The longest rows are made of 23 diamonds, then diminishing again.
Once the 36 rows were done, I could sew them together. Matching points was obligatory, of course, but quite easy indeed. And this is the result:
I already know how I’m going to quilt it but for the moment, I have put this finished top aside and am working on my New York Beauty Medallion quilt. I am hand quilting the last border now. It will be finished soon and hopefully adorn my sister’s sitting room.
