We’re saying saying our vows and heading off to the honeymoon with the third and final part of the Eight Carat Quilt, the finishing. This Quilt Along is coming to an end, but don’t be sad! This quilt design is timeless and you will love yours forever. Now, for our finishing, we’ll be piecing together the top of the quilt. Remember to refer to your Triangles on a Roll Quilts Book for complete pattern instructions. After piecing and adding your border, you can go ahead and finish your quilt with some quilting however you like!
Who’s Quilting Along?
Our quilty staffers are sewing up this quilt in their favorite fabrics.
About the Book
Triangles on a Roll Quilts has 16 quilt patterns that are picture-perfect thanks to Triangles on a Roll™ triangle paper. The designs cover eight different sizes of Triangles on a Roll™, from little to large.
About the Quilt
The Eight Carat Quilt finishes at 60.5″ square and has a 24″ center block. It uses 1.25 yards of prints or solids, along with some background fabric and two sizes of Triangles on a Roll. Triangles on a Roll™ triangle paper allows you to create perfectly accurate half-square triangle units in any size and amount you need. Unroll and cut just what you need, then roll it back up for easy storage. This short video tutorial shows you how.
You can refer to the fabric requirements for details on what fabrics to gather for your quilt, and don’t forget to pick up a copy of the Triangles on a Roll Quilts Book for complete pattern instructions.
