    blanket stitched triangle quilt

    I recently found a half finished quilt made of fabric squares folding in half to make a triange...batting is put in and then it is sewn on all three sides with a blanket stitch using what appears to be crochet thread. The triangles are then joined together to make a quilt with the same thread. No pattern was with this and I was hoping someone would have one. This was originally done by my mother-in-law who passed 21 years ago and I found it in my sisters attic after she passed this spring so it has become important for me to finish it. Any help would be really appreciated. I also am having trouble finding the crochet thread its thinner then size 3 and I cant find a match. I am going to try emailing or writing thread companies and see what I can come up with. All the fabric was stored in a bag with the half made quilt so I just am looking for the pattern and the thread.

    Haven't seen anything like it but it sounds interesting. Maybe if you post a picture others will be able to help. (I'm picture challenged myself!)

    It's a popcorn quilt. DH's grandmother made one for us in red and white. She just sewed the triangles shut then whip-stitched them together. So, the embroidered blanket stitch on yours is a little different. No pattern is needed. I don't think there are any standards. I would just try to match the thread you have as best you can. Is there any discernable pattern in the way the triangles are already stitched together? What/how many colors do you have?

    Can you post a picture? It kind of sounds like the one where you sew two squares together leaving a small opening for turning right side out where the corners meet in the center? A square of batt is inserted into the hole and then the opening is stitched shut. The squares are then hand stitched together and it makes a reversible quilt that appears to be triangles?

    Do the squares look like this? This is made from one square of fabric that fold in half, sew across the 2 short ends and then open the rectangle up, matching the center seams and sew part way in towards the center from each corner. The units are then stuffed with a square of quilt batt and the finished squares are hand stitched together.

    google Lizbeth Threads. They have thread smaller than 3 in many colors. I can't remember what the website is, but I have purchased from them and it is good quality.
