Equilateral Triangle Mini Quilt, Kitchen Curtain and a Skirt!

A few months or so ago, I bought a fat quarter bundle at Remnants: Fiber culture for no reason other than it looked pretty. About 7 months ago, I moved into a new house. In turn, my walls are still incredibly naked. So, that fat quarter bundle paired with my bare house is an excellent recipe for creation! Please check out my equilateral triangle mini quilt, kitchen curtain and skirt! 
Who doesn't love triangles? I realize that triangles come in all different shapes and sizes (and students should learn about more than just the regular triangle), but there is still something about the equilateral triangle that I adore. 3 equal sides, 3 congruent 60 degree angles...wait...oh yes...the 60 degree angles is what I love! They were interesting to cut out and fairly simple to piece together! This blog, On the Windy Side, originally inspired me to go for it. I have plans to make a larger one in the near future for a gift.

Perfect for the kitchen. I can glance over at the magic triangles while I am cooking. I still may bring it down a little lower on that wall.

And along with a naked house comes naked windows! Slowly but surely, I'm making them gorgeous. I used some of the fabric for a basic curtain. It was so simple. Rectangles, ironing, and straight seams...loveliness!

Here is another view. I can adjust the curtain rod as different light comes in throughout the day. The yellows (or yellers as I like to jokingly say) in the fabrics just remind me of the kitchen! 

Lastly, using some elastic thread and squares, I pieced together this little skirt. I've worn it a few times and I love it!

Not the best photo...but you get an idea for how it looks on.

Of course, I have scraps left over, so some scrappy potholders are already in the works! :-)

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

  1. Hi Bettina - all your projects are lovely - that bundle had lots of great fabrics. Of course, I especially love the equilateral triangle quilt - thanks for the link to my blog :-) By the way, you are a no-reply blogger, I posted instructions on how to change that on my blog a couple of days ago if you are interested.
