Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Blue And White Triangles.

Posted on | January 14, 2012 | 18 Comments

The blue and white HST quilt is quilted and bound.

Simple and basic but perfect for this fabric.

Straight line quilting was all that was needed.

The binding was the same blue that was used in the small highlight around the centre.

This flowering gum is just starting to blossom. The bees are loving it. I tried to catch a photo of the rosellas having a lovely time in the tree, too, but before I could reach my camera, a flock of cockatoos flew over and frightened the rosellas away.  I may be luckier next time.

    Luv your quilt Karen, simple but sEw beautiful. Two color quilts are always awesome…… and white….red and white, you can’t go wrong. I can finally comment again.

    Wow, I love the quilt, the simple ones are so fresh and appealing. That gum is gorgeous, I thought the Rosellas were bossy to cockatoos, maybe thats because they are to King parrots.

    This is beautiful. I love half square triangles, and the blue warms my heart. Warm is good here in Colorado right now!! We don’t have all the beautiful flowers in bloom! :-( But I sure do like looking at yours!

    Hi Karen,
    Your quilt is lovely, the backing really fits in. You don’t have to have a fancy quilt to have a lovely quilt as we can see with the quilt you have just made. Love the flowering gum. Regards, Anita.

    Wonderful quilt. I especially like the accent in the middle.

    Also, I really miss Rosellas and Cockatoos. We used to chase them around our neighborhood to take photos. We felt sure that the neighbors were saying “there go the property values… the American’s are here!!!!”

  • Karen says:

    Love the fabric and love the quilt. Gives the eyes a good work out. Change the direction of the quilt and change the emphasis.
    Wish we had a flowering gum. I’ll trade you the cockatoos for the dirty noisy miners that have invaded our area.

    Stunning quilt. I love the fabrics.

  • Rachaeldaisy says:

  • Fiona says:

    Love the quilt Karen… it really has come out so effective… my flowering gum has some big fat buds (it’s only a wee little tree though) they are stunning aren’t they….

  • I love your blue and white! It is just so geometrically satisfying. LOL Great binding choice, too.

    Good to see the flowers on your gum tree (never seen one of those here). The flowers look quite a bit like our crepe myrtles.

  • Linda says:

    Your quilt is stunning, thanks for sharing!

  • Denise in PA says:

    It’s so pretty – I love the fabrics you used. It’s amazing how only two fabrics can making such a stunning quilt. And, I always love a blue & white quilt. I think I’ve yet to make one though. I’ve done red & white and green & white. This combo’s next!

  • The quilt is just lovely. Are rosellas a kind of bird? Love your tree picture as I look out of my window at snow. What kind of tree?

  • Belinda says:

    This is beautiful. Love the colors and how it turned out. The flowering gum is lovely.

  • Debbie says:
