Right now many of quilts are custom orders for people with personalized ideas for their friend’s new arrivals. The Dark Side of the Moon quilt and the Red Scrappy Circles quilt were a big hit.
One request was for a quilt that was a Czech Flag.
Do you see what I see? Y-seams. EEEK!!! I went off to Pinterest to get some ideas on how to take the triangle feel and make it work.
Based on this quilt I had the idea of using blue, red and white fabrics that didn’t scream American flag to get started. I thought gray would be good complimenting color. Off to the store I went and found all of the fabrics. There are a variety of Moda fabrics and a few others mixed in. I used the Tri-Rex tool to help me cut out many 5 1/2″ inch triangles.
The piecing went well but I did lose some of the points when sewing the rows together. Good quilting can trick the eye into seeing that perfect triangle.

Heard this weekend this quilt was a hit too. I have a few triangles left over and I’m energized to give them another go.
