I wanted to show my Triangle flimsy's today that I am making in the Triangle Quilt Along-link on the side bar.
I really am happy with how this top one looks. These are the Isosceles triangles I made using a Quilt in a Day ruler, these were from 6" strips. I was going for a 36" sq. quilt, so after piecing the triangles I decided I wanted to add this cute checkerboard border and make it look like it was floating around the triangles. I used 2"cut white borders on each side of the checkerboard(which were also 2"cut).
I wanted to show how I dealt with the thicker intersections-I used my yellow Whacker. It is made especially for fabrics so it doesn't break down the fibers. I steam the intersection, then while hot, whack it twice, it really does make it lay flatter. I usually whack it on the back but sometimes it will get a little whack on the front too :-)
And this quilt was made using the 60 deg. ruler. I won't put any borders on this one as it is really close to 36" now. Next week I will be quilting these up.
