Equilateral Triangles in Black, Gray, Wine

Finished this one up.
Black and Gray and Wine batiks with added gray solids.
It suits our weather this week - dark skies and a bit of snow. The red can be the fire inside.

One done, next one up.

The Christmas quilt is done.  
I so liked making this design, I have at least 3 more quilts in mind that would be similar. I've seen it (or similar) called Chinese Lantern, Japanese Lantern, Modern Squash blossom, and Delectable Mountain quilt block. My first exposure  was seeing a quilt by (the very talented) Jolene over at Blue elephant stitches and I was so inspired. 

 Next up on the frame this morning is a simple equilateral triangle quilt with gray and black with a touch of wine. A masculine quilt for a son who asked for gray and black... I begged to put an accent color in. 
I have the week off work and lots of quilting plans! 
Then... this one (shown before) is trimmed up and on the design wall for review! 
2015 is almost here.

Christmas Quilt in process

Merry Christmas!

My quilting project for my time off work is a Christmas Quilt.  The patchwork is the aztec / squash blossom design done in totally scrap holiday fabric. The back I purchased on a great sale.  I am experimenting with making quilting guidelines out of freezer paper and ironing them on. Row by Row.

I hope your Holidays are full of JOY ! ! !
