My June ‘19 One Monthly Goal was to make 50 more equilateral triangle blocks for my version of Melody Miller’s Cotton+Steel Picnic Quilt. I have included one other equilateral triangle block not included in the Picnic quilt. I recalled my 10th grade Geometry class and remembered the equilateral triangle bisected down the middle forming two right triangles. Below are two pics of the 55 blocks I’ve made so far arranged by type of block but certainly not how they will be arranged in the finished quilt:
I’m now referring to this project as my Vertices Quilt. I think I have enough of the larger blocks and am now focusing on making more half-rectangle triangle blocks. I hope to get this quilt finished in time to enjoy it this summer.

Hi Mary! What a cool quilt idea, and I think your Geometry teacher would be proud of you. I just love the addition of the right angle triangles – it’s just another added interest piece of the triangle puzzle. Are you using the half-rectangle blocks as a border? I love this project, Mary, and can’t wait to see it complete. ~smile~ Roseanne
Those triangles look very effective. Looking forward to seeing the end result.
Wow, such interesting shapes you’ve created!
Fun quilt! Triangles are on my list to try soon. Lots of inspiration here.
I love how this is looking! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your project.
