SUNSHINE & SHADOW TRIANGLES

Sunshine & Shadow Triangles

I had an idea for a simple wall hanging using yellow and blue triangles for several months. Sunshine & Shadow Triangles would use up more scraps cut into 5″ squares.

I have been doing quilts from my scrap bins and stash since 2019, with few that were planned or not scraps in that time. It’s frugal but also makes sense when I already have so much fabric already.

I sorted scraps to find the “perfect” blues and yellows for this quilt.

Ironing and cutting 100 of those 5″ squares is soothing to my stressed mood.

Then I drew a pencil line on the back of the yellow squares diagonally. It was the perfect excuse to watch an old movie and relax. See how I make flying geese here.

Yep, you guessed it. I got distracted with another project and the squares sat forgotten until I was cleaning up the sewing room. I wanted to return to a clean sewing room from my quickly planned vacation to Maine this year.

Those squares were all ready to go and would make an easy project for Maine. I could visit and sew without feeling distracted.

Sewing the triangles together

Once the triangles were sewn together and ironed, it was time to put together the rows. The top is 8 x 10 rows.

Here’s another idea for using triangles like this.

I brought two fabrics from home to make borders for this top. The inside border is a geometric in white, blue and yellow cut 2″ wide. The outside border is a fun print with rabbits, moles, cats, hedgehogs and plants on a blue background cut 4″ wide.

Finished size of Sunshine & Shadow Triangles is 44″ x 52″.

This was a great project to bring to Maine this year. Easy to work on and visit with the other quilters at the same time. I think that I will try to do some straight machine quilting on it. For now, it is on a hanger in the closet waiting until I have some time to finish it.

Don’t give up on your projects. If you like it, then it is worth doing.

Happy Quilting.
