In 2013 I was making quite a few gift quilts, as quite a few people close to me were achieving milestones - marriages and births. I needed to make a wedding quilt for my dear grad school friend and fellow news and history nerd, and wanted to make something scrappy and fun as well, and had just been smitten by an easy and graphic idea on Fancy Tiger Crafts for big triangles. I made mine smaller than the original idea, and the final goal was a throw size quilt. I never presume to make larger quilts for people's beds - that's quite personal. But a quilt for Sunday afternoon Netflix marathon or nap? Absolutely.
Katie and Seth's triangle scrappy quilt came of this. I pieced the entire top in a single weekend, blowing off steam and funneling my anger at not getting a particular job I really wanted but was told I was "overqualified" for. It was good timing. I have since loved its cameo appearances on Katie's Instagram photos, usually nearby one of her rambunctious cats, Bruce Wayne and George Harrison.
