Taking the simple triangle and making a real feature of it, Siobhan Rogers’s Strawberries and Triangles quilt pattern features large triangles made up of smaller triangle components to create the overall effect of a floating hexagon in the centre of the quilt.
Using the same background fabric for the alternating triangles and sashing strips, create the illusion of the triangle-pieced hexagon motif floating on top of the quilt
Have fun picking a strawberry print fabric for the background with matching solid or shot cotton fabrics to suit the patterned fabric
Full materials list included in instructions
Detailed step-by-step instructions take you through cutting the fabrics, constructing the larger triangle components and joining them to finish the quilt
Makes a great gift for a baby or child, and can be made up in fabrics and colours to suit the child’s bedroom — it’s a good idea to pick the background fabric before deciding which solid colours would work best with the print fabric
Includes Siobhan’s tip for using directional print fabrics for the background
A great quilt project for intermediate-level quilters
