Triangle Quilt Along: Triangle Fabric Mountains

Here's the mini quilt I made for the Triangle Quilt Along. Inspired by the mountains where I live, I couldn't resist having the photos taken at the Lake. Of course I chose a very windy day! We risked the quilt flying away a few times and I had to borrow a jacket from Ella because it was freezing! 


This is Lake Maggiore, in the north of Italy. You can see Isola Madre (Mother Island) in front of the mountains. The sun was setting and a storm was coming... Only a few hours earlier it was sunny and warm, in case you were wondering!




Title: Triangle Fabric Mountains mini quilt:
Size:  20.5" x 20.5", with 119 3" triangles
Fabrics: mainly Ever Kelly's Storybook Lane for Andover Fabrics
Quilt design: my own!
No binding!


The quilting is just around the mountains and the "cloud" machine embroidery on the white background fabric.


Just added this photo to prove how windy it was! Thank you to Daniele Di Ciccio for managing to take these great photos in such difficult conditions. And thank you to Ella for helping!


Joining the final link up over at Paula's The Sassy Quilter. She's been fantastic, encouraging and posting very clear tutorials for the Triangle Quilt Along. Thank you Paula!
