Triangle Transparency

Last October, Greenville Modern Quilt Guild hosted Yvonne Fuchs from Quilting Jet Girl for a lecture and workshop on Transparency Quilts. In the workshop, we made Yvonne's Triangle Transparency Quilt, and mine is quilted and finished!

Yvonne was such a great instructor! The focus of both the lecture and class was on creating the illusion of transparency with fabric selection. I was able to use some blues that I had in my stash - 3 solids and 1 print - to create the shading necessary.

I used my walking foot and straight lines to machine quilt the project and I'm pretty happy with how the quilting lines compliment the design. I used a medium blue 50 weight Aurifil thread. The center design is one from Jacquie Gering's book, Walk and I love how it turned out!

It was such a fun quilt to make - with so many possibilities!


  1. I really love the quilting you chose to compliment your layout, Cindy, it's a beautiful finish! It's also fun to spot your directional prints all looking tidy together. :)

  2. Wow! It's really cool! I love this design in the blues you chose, like different shades of clouds and sky. And that quilting in the center looks super! Congrats on a wonderful finish :)

  3. Your quilt turned out beautifully. Great colour choices and the quilting design is perfect. I haven’t made this one and seeing yours makes me want to dive in and start one now. Congratulations on a wonderful finish.

  4. Cynthia, this quilting is PERFECT!! In fact, I just finished making a Triangle Transparency quilt top for my son and would be thrilled if you would let me copy your design. I've been trying to decide for ages how to quilt it and yours fits this design just right! When it's my turn to blog about this finish I will absolutely give you the credit and probably link back to this blog post of yours. It's YUMMY!! :)

  5. Everyone is saying it but it is sooo true. The quilting you choose is amazing, perfect, beautiful... Congrats on this terrific finish! Enjoy xo
