The quilt uses shades of green and grey, specifically lime, cactus, ash, charcoal Kona and medium grey from Heritage Solids. I've been wanting to do an equilateral triangle quilt for some time so when I saw Julie Herman's HexNMore ruler, I knew it was for me. I have to say that I love this ruler - four shapes in one, it's so clever. I already have a few other projects in mind using this ruler and one is even a hexie project.

With the graphic design, I thought simple quilting was in order. It's quilted with Aurifil 50 wt. 5016 in straight lines, echoing the seams. A fun surprise was the pattern the quilting made -- stars that show up beautifully on the back! Love! I bound it in the lime green for some pop along the edges.
The TGIFF! party this week is over with Lynette at What A Hoot! She has finished a gorgeous reproduction quilt. It's the last week for OctoberQuest so if you've finished one or more quilts this month, link up!
There's always fabulous inspiration with Amy and the Blogger's Quilt Festival. Definitely worth a looksee, as well!
Thanks for stopping by and happy quilting!
