Island Batik's Triangle Tricks Quilt Challenge

Updated: Jul 9



This month, as an Island Batik Ambassador, we were tasked to make a quilt using triangles. I decided to design a quilt using Electric Quilt 8 software and Accuquilt dies. I wanted to make an image from the triangles and decided on an animal. I really wasn't sure what animal I was making but I had several renditions from a dog, cat and a bear. The final quilt turned out to be a bear or what I think a bear may look like using all triangle pieces in a quilt.


Since I am not very good at precisely cutting out triangles without a ruler or cutting system, I decided to use the Accuquilt cutting system. I used two dies to make my image. If you are not confident about cutting out triangles and worried about your piecing them, try a cutting system or a ruler specifically made to cut triangles. It is a tremendous help and takes out the uncertainty.


I started to lay out my design and went through a couple of changes before deciding on the final quilt. I enlisted the help and advice from my husband and sister to decide on the changes I should make. None of these were used in the final quilt made, but they were very similar in my final design. I made just a few teaks.

The final design ended up being a bear.


Materials List:

The Accuquilt system made piecing very easy and the the peaces went together without a problem. They fit perfectly. I chain pieced to make the project sewing go faster.

After chain piecing pieces together, I started to build it row by row.

I squared up the quilt, sandwiched it, quilted it and bound it using a solid Island Batik Fabric.


Thank you Island Batik, Schmetz Needles , Hobbs Batting, Aurifil thread , Schmetz Needles and Accuquilt for providing the supplies for this project. I had fun designing a quilt using triangles and taking a different approach to designing it.


Check out my fellow Island Batik Ambassador's projects. Their Triangle quilts are fun and unique. Thank you for reading my blog and have a great day.
