Tumbling Triangles

The Tumbling Triangles quilt is based on an antique quilt made using two solid color fabrics. The darker of the 1930s pink solids and an off-white background. What could be easier. If you’re going to make a two color version, choose fabrics with a good amount of contrast between them. The Idea Page shows other color options of Civil War fabrics, florals and a scrap buster 1930s version. I drafted a few border ideas for the options page even though the original quilt didn’t have borders.

When piecing this quilt I use my tried and true method for making the half square and quarter square triangles. Then I square up the units if needed before completing the block. You can use whatever method you like best to make the triangle units. Another reason I like my old fashioned way is that it allows me to put together those monotonous triangle pieces together a little at a time while I’m working on another project. I use them as leader pieces as I’m chain piecing and before you know it they’re done.
