    Opinion and recommendation please !!

    Hi everyone,

    I saw an amazing triangle quilt at a quilt shop made with the tula pink chipper free spirit collection. It was so beautiful I decided I want to make one. I love the design for large print fabric and was thinking it would be great to use for other fabric I have been collecting. I don't want to end up with 2 identical patterned quilts though.

    Does anyone have any ideas for variation of the triangle quilt or any other suggestions?

    I really like the triangle patterns that Jaybird quilts comes up with. I made the chopsticks one, but she has loads of other options.

    Yes but use lots of starch on all your fabrics before cutting and get a 60 degree triangle ruler. It will be worth it in the end, especially if you happen to like triangle quilts. You can use the ruler for other stuff too.

    I use almost straight starch for a piece like this and then stick it to the shower wall to dry, then iron and cut.

    When nurses still wore caps, I would wash mine and use straight starch, stick it to the side of the refrigerator to dry, then iron it. Perfectly stiff every time! Since I know it works, now I have a new/old way to use the starch for fabric. Thanks!
