Triangle Joy PDF Pattern
This is a downloadable PDF pattern with all instructions for making your own quilt.
Paper-piecing has taken the contemporary quilt world by storm — and for good reasons. Paper-piecing is a way to accurately piece complex blocks. And once you get the hang of it, paper-piecing is really quite easy!
I started designing the blocks in Triangle Joy when I participated in an online challenge to make a mini quilt with triangles. I realized that I was having so much fun designing triangle blocks that I kept going! You can make this pattern in solids (like the sample quilt on the cover) or use a variety of print scraps for the triangles and the background.
In this pattern, you have full-size templates for 11 paper-pieced blocks. (Be sure to print or copy the pages at 100%.) I’ve also included a planning page to help you keep organized.
If you have successfully paper-pieced simple blocks, then you should have no difficulty making any of the blocks in this pattern. Also, to help you get started, I have graded the blocks for “degree of difficulty.” Even if you are a very experienced paper-piecer, I suggest starting with the blocks labeled Easy. Sometimes we have to do a refresher if we’ve been away from it for a while.
