Equilateral Triangle Quilt

I am working on an equilateral triangle quilt in oranges and a little black, it has motorcycles on it. My friend will be ecstatic, as it is her colors and her interest. I'll show it after it's complete.
Here is one I made last year for another friend who likes lavender. 
I didn't lay out the triangles to plan the quilt, but just started sewing and let them fall as they may, but I did watch per row to not have identical triangles lined up. Kinda fun.

Have a happy weekend.

Jean Quilt

Hot off the sewing machine is my first jean quilt! It is for my Grand-dog ZEEK, shown below. He is an awesome bouncy happy boxer who just moved to Utah from Florida. YAY!  Also I'm delighted to have my son and daughter in law - Levi and Jenna move back. Four years in the Navy - done!

The quilt... (my first and last jean quilt I bet!) is heavy - It is free-form patchwork, into large blocks, then 4 rows. I pressed all the seams open then stitched on both sides of them. Paired it up with a text fabric (Premier Prints from - heavier than quilters cotton), thin cotton batting in the middle, and quilted it with wavy lines. It's purpose... will be a seat cover in the back of my dil's auto for Zeek.

ZEEK ! ! !
