Trifecta Quilt


This quilt is Trina’s Trifecta quilt and the pattern is from Fons and Porter, you can purchase a digital download version here.   The pattern was originally done in shades of pink but Trina made this quilt for her daughter who asked it be done in shades of grey….15 shades of grey to be exact!   Trina bought all the fabric while she was in the States and then pieced the quilt top when back at her new home in Lima, Peru.   She use to live here in Flin Flon but then moved and became my first international client.  She has sent me quilt top that she has made while living in Europe and the States and I never know what country she will be sending me quilt tops from next! Smile


  Since the movement in the piecing is the focus I wanted the quilting to be simple so we chose Northwinds for the panto.  I used white So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.  This is a large quilt, 90” x 100”.


I find this pattern quite mesmerizing and love how it builds up to the center.


We had our first sighting of snow this week but it melted as soon as it hit the ground.  Only 1’c today so time to dig out the warmer clothes!
