Go Cutter – Isosceles Triangle
It’s been awhile since I used my GO Cutter so I dug it out along with a fat quarter collection I bought last year called Reunion by Sweetwater. I thought it would make a cute little boys quilt as it has a nautical theme and I used the Isosceles Triangle GO die shape as it reminded me of nautical flags. I was able to cut out 17 triangles out of each fat quarter and also cut triangles out for the background using Kona Snow fabric. I quilted free hand wavy lines across the quilt to look like wind or waves. I thought about adding the odd swirl but decided against it to keep the design simple. Quilters Dream Blend batting and White So Fine thread on top and bottom.
My neighbours have a nautical themed yards so made for a handy backdrop for my pictures! The backing and binding are a yellow fabric I had left over from the backing of my 5 Minute Quilt and it matched the yellow in the quilt perfectly.
I have a second bundle of this fabric but in a different color way so might make another one but save that for our guilds next UFO day. This was intended to be for that day but I got carried away and finished it in one day, from cutting out the triangle to the finishing binding, it’s a quick project to do! I machine stitched down the binding which I rarely do but I am happy with how it looks . The finished size is 35”x51” so would fit nicely in a crib.
