Nani Iro triangle quilt

I’ve had some pieces of Nani Iro double gauze in my stash for a while, and wasn’t sure what to do with them.  I thought about a camisole, but no piece was big enough, so a quilt seemed the way to go.

It’s fragile, stretchy stuff, so I didn’t know if a quilt would work.  I could have ended up with a costly pile of scraps!  I made up a simple layout of half square and quarter square triangle blocks.  The diagonal seams helped to stabilize the fabric.

I didn’t want to weaken the fabric by unpicking, so if the points didn’t match I planned to leave them.  Then I saw Anne using Karen Kay Buckley’s Perfect Circles for one of her beautiful quilts, which inspired me to make some circles.  I’ve added these randomly, diagonally across the quilt.  They cover any dodgy bits, add colour and texture, and use up scraps too.

The finished quilt is 45″ square – ideal for winter TV watching and hand sewing.
