Some of my go to quilt patterns for quick and easy gifts are Bunnie Cleland’s Triangle Frenzy® quilts. You can purchase her patterns on her website or through your local quilt shop. I highly recommend purchasing her pattern as her instructions for piecing her quilts are superb.
When I originally purchased fabric for the quilt, I stared at it for weeks – trying to envision what it would look like all cut up. I finally realized I needed the help of Electric Quilt to test the fabric layout.
This video was originally published over a year ago. But the concept remains relevant today.
I will take you through the whole process including drafting the hexagon blocks, figuring out the size of the blocks, setting the blocks using "custom set", importing cropping and resizing the border fabric in the image tab and finally "rotating and fussy cutting" the fabric in the final quilt layout.
Here is the quilt as designed in EQ.
Featured Pattern - Northwoods Loon
Hot off the press -- the Northwoods Loon quilt pattern is now available for purchase!
One of the sample quilts was done in batiks and the other using the just released MN Shop Hop fabric -- the Mosquito fabric was too hard to resist.
Purchase a physical copy of the pattern (mailed to you). This is includes a sufficient number of foundation patterns on newsprint to complete the quilt.
Purchase a download copy of the pattern.
