Some Like it Hot, Some Like it 60 Degrees

My BFF DeAnn still lives in Arizona.  Rich and I gave up that heat more than a decade ago, and are very happy on the Oregon Coast where it never gets hot enough to shut down an airport.  But people in Arizona need quilts so they can hang by the pool in winter.  It only seemed fair to send DeAnn a cool colored 60 degree triangle quilt to let her know I was thinking of her.

When I made the baby quilt for Kai and the coordinating mommy/daddy quilt shown just below, I ended up with leftover strips, several with 60 degree cuts on the end.  I decided I would cut out a bunch of 60° triangles all the same size and then have fun arranging them.  I didn’t have a pattern in mind, just a lot of triangles.

As usual, the arranging took the bulk of the time.  I only had to supplement with a few extra fabrics and in no time I had the quilt finished.  It went off to the longarmer with some fluffy teal colored minky, and Karen and I chose the pantograph Splat.

It didn’t make a whole lot of sense to send a quilt to someone in Arizona in the summertime, so I took my time with the binding and waited until Christmas to send it off.  Even with all that time, the quilt got shipped off before I got pictures of the finished product.  Sigh.  And once again that pesky yellow-green fabric does not photograph well.
