In quilting, there are many ways to get similar results. This issue we’ve got a selection of great triangle quilt patterns, but they’re all unique, as are the ways they’re constructed. Whether it’s through foundation piecing, making half rectangle triangle units, half square triangle units or flying geese, the end result is always awesome. But the good news for quilters is that there’s no single technique for anything, whether it’s piecing triangle quilts, applique, foundation paper piecing, curved piecing or quilting. While our directions reflect the designer’s personal tastes, we encourage you to use your favourite techniques to get the desired result.

In this issue we MEET Faith Jones of Fresh Lemons Quilts and MM regular contributor Leanne Parsons of Devoted Quilter. We MAKE triangle quilts, orange peel quilts and give old blocks a fresh feel. the most of mixing techniques, and we MOTIVATE you to speak your mind through your quilts and explore mixed technique quilting.
