Triangle Quilt FINISHED!

(Picture Overload Alert!)

I've been working on the Triangle Quilt Along with Paula @ The Sassy Quilter for .... oh, about six weeks now I think.  (It doesn't really seem like that long!) 

I picked my fabrics ..........

Cut them out .......

Got them on the design wall ....

Started sewing them together ....

My backing fabric arrived ....

My top got finished ...

I got it quilted and started attaching the scrappy binding ... 

And now .... FINISHED!!

My Mom always "needs one of those" whatever I'm making, so this time she's getting it.  

She has seen snippets of it when Gabbie would be looking at pics on my phone, but she doesn't get to get a good look at it (Gabbie doesn't let anyone else hold my phone!) so hopefully this will be a surprise.

Triangle fabrics: cotton quilting prints purchased in store at Hancock Fabrics.
Backing: "New York State of Mind Brick Wall Grey by Bernatex, online @
Thread: Aurifil 50 wt Color 2615
Binding: scrappy, from leftover triangle prints.
All sewn and quilted in my living room on my Brother cs6000i. 

Approximate size (before washing) 54" x 62"

Linking up today with the final Quilt-Along linky party.  
You should come check out all the great quilts.  So many made with the same pattern yet they are all so different!!
