I have a recent thing for antique quilts. This was inspired by a quilt I saw in a magazine (Country Home?). It was solid red and tan, super simple, but made such a big impact in the room. So here’s my take on it, with some really fun red fabrics. And now I have a fabric stash totally void of anything red. Luckily there’s an easily solution for that. This quilt top is going to lay at the foot of my bed, and once again reminds me that simple is (almost) always better. And even better if its red.
This quilt top measures 61” by 83”.
If you’d like to make it yourself here’s a quick tutorial.
( Adding to the 100 triangle tutorials already out there. Make that 101 triangle tutorials now. )
Chain piecing comes in handy here and they whip up really fast.
Now do this 83 more times. Sounds like fun doesn’t it? Stack 2 or 3 at a time for cutting to make it go faster.
My quilt was 11 squares by 15 squares. If you want it to fit a twin sized bed, I would account for some shrinkage and add one more column, making it 12 squares by 15 squares, or 67” by 83”.
The tan fabric I used is from Joann’s. If I remember right it was country classics in ivory? Double check that because I’m not positive, it was the same color as the linen.
