Today I’m sharing the last quilt I made for the Quilty Love Palette Picks bundle. This is the Quilty Love Palette Picks Triangle Peaks quilt.
Now, this certainly isn’t the last quilt I’ll be making using the Palette Picks bundle but it’s the last one I made for Robert Kaufman before the bundle came out.
The Triangle peaks quilt pattern is a good one for showcasing fabrics so I was excited to sew one up using my Palette Picks bundle. Triangle Peaks is a quick and easy modern triangle quilt.
Quilty Love Palette Picks Bundle
The Quilty Love Palette Picks bundle is available in shops now! I curated this bundle last fall with Robert Kaufman. My bundle has a mix of neutrals, blues, pinks, a pop of coral and a splash of yellow.
Quilt shops can order from Robert Kaufman or a distributor.
I really love how versatile this bundle is turning out to be. It easily splits into different colorways or looks completely different when you remove a few colors.
For this Triangle Peaks quilt I left out the coral and nectarine for a softer palette. So this Quilty Love Palette Picks Triangle Peaks quilt uses 18 of the 20 fat quarters in the bundle.
Triangle Peaks quilt pattern
Triangle Peaks is a quick and easy modern triangle quilt pattern. This one has been out for quite a while now and I’ve made countless versions of it since it’s a fun one to sew up.
The pattern uses fat quarters and an accent fabric. The smaller triangles are all the same fabric according to the pattern but you can also cut them from the fat quarters. You might need an extra fat quarter to get them all but if you cut really carefully you can squeeze them out of the required fabric.
Quick and easy 60 degree triangle quilt
I love triangle quilts! 60 degree triangle quilts like Triangle Peaks are super easy to make especially when you use a 60 degree triangle ruler. My favorite triangle ruler is this 8.5 inch one because it will work for all the different sizes. If you get just one triangle ruler, go with a larger one like this. You can also cut hexies with it! So one ruler, many fun shapes.
Using a ruler really helps because there is no guessing on how to line up your triangles. They piece nice and easy with a ruler.
So if you are an ambitious beginner don’t be afraid of triangles! They really aren’t too bad to sew up.
This pattern also has all of the pressing instructions that really help you nest and line up your seams better.
Long Arm Quilting
I sent this Quilty Love Palette Picks Triangle Peaks quilt off to Vintage Stitch for quilting. This quilting pantograph is called Woven Wind. I love the movement it adds to this quilt.
Natural Kona background
I’ve recently started using a new neutral for my quilt backgrounds! This is kona cotton in natural. It’s a beautiful almost linen looking color but it’s one of the kona quilting cottons. It has a tiny bit of speckle in it and is a creamier color.
I really love how it gives a little added depth. I used it in this Crossroads quilt too. It’s just a little more exciting than my go-to kona snow.
Carolina Gingham quilt backing
This Triangle Peaks quilt is finished off with a Robert Kaufman Carolina Gingham in the color sand. This fabric is also in the Quilty Love Palette Picks bundle. Gingham fabrics make the cutest quilt backings! There are several colors and scale in the Carolina gingham line.
Kona cotton binding
I finished this one off with a kona cotton binding in the color Deep Rose. This color is also in the Palette Picks bundle.
