Triangle Quilt Along - finish.

I joined the Finish Along at The Littlest Thistle for the second quarter in 2014 and my list of projected finishes is here.
This was my first finish.

All good things come to an end and this evening is the last time to post about the Triangle Quilt Along.

Here it is, at the eleventh hour (almost).

Triangle quilt. made during the Triangle Quilt Along at The Sassy Quilter.
In photos taken just before sunset blues are enhanced. I've no idea what the cause is, but here I appear to have used purple patches. No. No purple. No blue. This is fuchsia - bright pink, but clearly with a blue component.

Here a close up.

Closer view of the binding and quilting.

More loopy quilting.

The sun is off my balcony now, so here is a photo I took in the sun this morning. Here the colours are more accurately reproduced. Unfortunately it was not only sunny but very windy with it. If you look closely you can see the binding flapping around.

Some statistics:
Triangles per row: 23
Number of rows: 16
Length: 210cm
Width: 170cm

Mona solids - yellow, fuchsia and green (binding)
Assorted  print FQs (mostly without enough selvedge to identify them)
Brice & Madeline jonehallmark for Free Spirit 
(backing - only piece large enough to have a name - 
and then I can't read the designer's name properly. sorry!)

I'm linking up to The Sassy Quilter for the triangle finish.
Thanks to Paula for organising the Quilt Along, 
and to my fellow bloggers who offered advice on quilting method and the tension issues last week.
I shall be writing a summary of your advice and my findings this week.

I'm also linking to Lily's Quilts for

I toyed with the idea of joining in that SAL, but being realistic, if I had started, I would still be working on it this time next year! Good work on finishing it on time. It looks great.

I think the colors are great! They blend well together. The colors do look very vivid. Sometimes just before photographing, I spray my quilt to get that vivid look. Congrats on a beautiful finish.
