My friend, Sarah, with Sarah Goer Quilts, has a fun monthly Linky party called Show Me Something. The theme this month is triangles. I decided to write a reprise post about my three favorite triangle projects. I’m going to start with my Blue Ombré HST quilt that I made in 2017 for my great-nephew, Jimmy, when he graduated from high school. This incredible pattern was designed by Sarah Goer, and it launched my love for color gradient projects. I blogged about this quilt in my Onward and Upward post, which also features another HST quilt that I made for Jimmy’s twin sister, Rachel.
The next project I want to include in this reprise post is the quilt I made for my stepdaughter, Alisha, when she married her wife, Wendy, in 2018. To learn more about this quilt, please see my Wedding Whirl Finished! and Wedding Whirl Quilt Top Finished posts. This was my first experience making paper-pieced half-square triangles which has become my preferred method for making HSTs.
And the last triangle quilt I want to share again is my Tranquility quilt which is on my bed right now. See my Tranquility Quilt Finished! post for details about this paper-pieced half-rectangle quilt that I made in 2019.

3 beautiful quilts! It’s fun to get to see them again.
Hi Mary! Each quilt is better than the next – I wouldn’t be able to pick a favorite if you forced me to. You are a master of solids, my friend. Aha, this also reflects your love paper piecing. Finally, you definitely rock the color gradient projects. What a fun recap and retrospective. ~smile~ Roseanne
Mary, your triangle quilts are amazing! I especially love the Blue Ombre quilt – just gorgeous!
I agree with the other comments, such pretty quilts! I especially like the interplay of the turquoise, purple and orange in that middle quilt. Fun to see them gathered together in one post!
