Marsala Triangles

Here it is! My Pantone Colour of the Year Quilt Challenge quilt top entry, measuring up at 62 inches by 45 inches.

I know I’m not alone in saying that my first reaction when I heard they had chosen Marsala as the colour of the year was one of horror and exclamations of ‘egad!’ and such like. I’m not totally swayed to the view that they’ve made the right choice but I have softened towards it.

The fabrics are ones I picked up at my local Textile Traders store at the last minute. I was considering entering and decided not to and then I read a blog post from Anne at Play Crafts a few weeks ago saying there was plenty of time, there’s a category for the top only, etcetera so… I went to Textile Traders  “to see what they had’. I came home with an armload of fabric that seemed to fit the bill, which I promptly washed, pressed and cut up.

There are a couple of firsts for me with this one – it’s my first on-line quilt challenge and my first time for making these equilateral triangles.
It went together pretty easily and I’m happy with the result, there’s no loss of points which is great.
