Triangle Fade Quilt

I'm so excited to share that Triangle Fade is now available!

.

You can find the digital pattern here, and the paper pattern here

This quilt was SO fun to design! There are 15 colors, so it is a great way to show off your favorite color palette! I recommend choosing 1-3 colors, then branching off with various shades of those base colors. For my cover quilt, my two colors were pink and teal. I then used my Kona swatches to pick multiple shades. I started with a rich burgundy color (Crimson), then faded my palette into a super light peach shade (Shell). Then, for my teals, I started with a light mint color (Desert Green), then I faded to dark teal (Everglade). 

.

I (of course) used Robert Kaufman Kona Solids. From top to bottom, they are: 

  • Everglade
  • Ultra Marine
  • Jade Green
  • Sage
  • Aloe
  • Seafoam
  • Desert Green
  • Shell
  • Bellini
  • Primrose
  • Melon
  • Camellia
  • Pomegranate
  • Sangria
  • Crimson

.

Whew! What a list, right?? I love each of these colors so much! I'm really excited to share that I have a few fabric bundles for this quilt in my shop! You can find them here

..

Here is the list of fabric requirements:

Another thing that I had to decide with this pattern, was if I wanted my darks to fade into each other or my lights to fade into each other. I ended up choosing the latter, and I really like have my two dark colors at opposite ends of the quilt. Plus, the way that Shell and Seafoam look beside each other is beautiful!

This pattern is written for three sizes: Baby (30" x 36"), Small Throw (46" x 55") and Large Throw (58" x 69"). The pattern includes triangle templates for all 3 sizes. If templates aren't your thing, the pattern also explains how to cut your triangles using my favorite Fiskars square ruler. The 30 and 60 degree lines work wonders!

I decided to bind and back my quilt with one of my favorite neutral fabrics "Firefly Whisper" from Art Gallery Fabrics, designed by Bonnie Christine.

.

The quilting is by the amazingly talented, Walker Quilt Co. . YALL! I  cannot get over her quilting! Seriously!!

.

She used the triangles to create a larger hexagon shape. I love how she organized the different motifs, it's brilliant!.

Brittany of @hopscotchcotton tested this quilt for me as I was writing the pattern. I love how she used a rainbow of colors!

.

Nicki, aka: @wovenandwoolly also tested for me. Just look at her gorgeous fall colors! I'm in love!

.

And, she tested my Model Farm quilt pattern, which is also releasing today!

I actually designed this quilt for a retreat that I did in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. The retreat was hosted by Long-Armed Mama. It was so fun to see everyone's quilts come together! Here are a few quilts from the weekend.

.

Megan (@megsaenz) created this stunning quilt top and captured the most beautiful photo of it! It looks like it should be in a magazine!

.

Erin of @sewsew89 took this beautiful #quiltsinthewild shot on the hills of West Virginia. I just love her colors that she used...stunning!

.

 

 

.

I LOVE Laura's (@finelyfabric) use of color here! I'm excited to see this all sewn together!

 .

Kiley (@longarmedmama) used gorgeous shades of teal and orange in her quilt. It's so subtle and calming!

.

.

This next quilt top is really fun because she used the exact same colors as my cover quilt, except, she had the darker colors meet in the middle. I love how it turned out!

.

 

This pattern extremely versatile and looks beautiful with prints and solids alike. Speaking of prints, if you want to find my Triangle Fade quilt using all Art Gallery Fabrics, see my Triangle Fade- Strawberry Lemonade Blog Post....coming soon!

.

Don't forget! You can find the pattern here (digital) or here (paper). Please tag me on social media (@loandbeholdstitchery) and use the hashtags #trianglefadequilt and #loandbeholdpatterns.

Happy Quilting!

  • I’ve just purchased the Triangle Fade pattern and the more I look at the pictures of quilts that have been made, the more possibilities I see! I never use solid color fabrics so my quilt should look very different. I collect Kaffe Fassett, Tim Holtz, Mod a Grunge, low volume neutrals and Marcia Derse fabrics. I’m looking forward to a fun experience with this pattern.
