Black and White Triangle Quilt: Finished

It was a week of marathon sewing and quilting to complete this black and white triangle quilt before I left for my Easter travels. When I first started, I didn't know how I was going to feel about all that black and white so I decided to add in some blue. You can read my previous post about this quilt here. I am so thrilled with the results and for a person who is so much about color, I think this is one of my favorite quilts to date. I was hoping that I would not have to photograph anymore quilts in the snow this season, but that ended up not to be the case. Fortunately, I can report that the snow is now all gone.
I used 15 different white prints, 15 different black prints and 8 different blue solids and prints to make up this quilt. Each triangle measures 4" and the overall size of the quilt is 60" x 72". I quilted it with straight lines on both sides of the horizontal and diagonal seams.
For the back, I used a black and white houndstooth flannel which gave the quilt a nice weight and softness. I love that I was able to find a black and blue binding to coordinate with the touch of blue in the top.
I have a ton of clean up to do after last week, plus I am still trying to kick my sickness so I may be needing a tiny break to get things in order again.
