Simply Triangles: A Blog Tour and Giveaway!

by
books, fun, staff projects

This contest is now closed. We will be announcing our winners shortly.

I feel so privileged to have the opportunity to take part in a blog tour that supports Barbara Cline and her fantastic new book, Simply Triangles. Barbara has really done it again! I enjoyed her first book, Star Struck Quilts, which focused on the eight-pointed Lone Star with numerous attractive variations. She continues her exploration of geometric designs using triangles in another well-written and well-illustrated book, Simply Triangles from C&T Publishing. As the subtitle suggests, the author provides projects using triangles to make stars, daisies (with some clever machine appliqué), and tessellating pinwheels.

Simply Triangles has many valuable quilt book features. Basic quilting supplies are sufficient for the projects using the provided templates, or two specialty tools that many quilters already own. Detailed instructions for increasingly complex projects include: hints for fabric selection, color value placement, marking, pinning, piecing and pressing. Especially helpful are step-by-step photographs and illustrations for the often dreaded Y-seam and mitered corners. Quilting design suggestions for each project include close-up shots of the author’s lovely quilting in finished quilts.

The designs in the book appeal to me because I enjoy quilts with interlocking and tessellating designs, and fussy-cutting to achieve a kaleidoscope effect.  I was inspired to make the first pattern in the book, Stacking Birds, using Connecting Threads’ All Hallow’s Bash collection. The fabrics used for the stars were:

   

The backing fabric was a the purple print in All Hallows Bash called Witch’s Brew, with Quilter’s Candy 3897 Mirage Carrot for Border 1 and 3908 Solid Black for the binding.

   

I followed the directions to layer five repeats of fabric and pin through the exact spots in all five layers. After cutting triangles with a 60° ruler (the book also provides a template), I placed them on my design wall. It was fun to see the repeated designs emerge in a ring formation.

  

Thanks to the excellent piecing and pressing instructions, the quilt top sewed together well.  I was pleased with the finished result!

Another enjoyable aspect of Simply Triangles is Barbara Cline’s emphasis on the way quilting binds her family and other quilters into a caring and sharing community. She comes from five generations of quilters in a close-knit Mennonite family. Several female relatives share their thoughts on how quilting has influenced their lives in excerpts called “Life Lessons”. I even learned a new word, “sewcialize”. What a great word!

Barbara Cline’s Simply Triangles is an excellent addition to any quilter’s library as a skill-building resource and source of inspiration for future projects. I am eager to try her method of overlaying netting to add a three-dimensional effect. Although not a book for novice quilters, I would highly recommend this book to all quilters who want to expand their piecing skills, experiment with color values, and make fascinating quilts with a strong geometric statement.

Now for the really fun part. C&T Publishing has graciously offered to give one winner a copy of this inspiring book. To sweeten the pot a little bit, we are also giving away two stack samplers of our new, limited edition Fall 2012 Batiks.
