Charming Triangles FINISHED

I have finished my Charm Quilt.



Each of the equilateral triangles are cut from a different fabric.  (Well, except that I am not perfect: only God is perfect.  I have found 2 pairs of triangles that may be from the same fabric).  There are 988 triangles on the front of this quilt and 14 triangles on the back - that makes 1002 triangles!!

Scraps of fabric - mind you.

Which I why I am entering this finished quilt in a Festival of Scrapiness  over at Stitched in Color.



I put the triangles into bigger triangles, and then into diamonds.



 When I started quilting the quilt, I intended to stitch on both sides of each seam.  That was quite a task with my little Singer sewing machine!!

But I am SO PLEASED with the results!!  Notice how it makes a pretty little star at every intersection of every triangle.






This is the back of the quilt - and you may be able to see that I used 8 different green fabric triangles and 6 brown triangles to frame the green




Here is some of the quilting detail on the back of the quilt.  I love the triangles and the stars!!




Here is a closer view of the front.  



Simply Charming!!
