|Quilt top done in 2.5 days|
|Doodling Quilt Motifs|
The center squares went super fast, but as I moved out to each surrounding border if blocks, not only were the blocks larger but there were more of them. Towards the outer rows, each block took 9-10 minutes each to quilt.

I love these EE Schenck Gelato ombre fabrics. Not only do they have absolutely beautiful colors that practically glow all by themselves, but when combined with this pattern, you get some great color combinations within each block and at the intersections. It was even fun hand sewing the binding as the colors continuously changed around the perimeter.

|Infinite Triangles Adding a Burst of Color on a Cloudy Morning|
With all this color on the front, I was in search of a black and white large text print to use on the back. At first I thought it would be fun to use numbers to tie in with the mathematical formula for this quilt, but didn't find any to my liking. But then I noticed this great new print still in the plastic wrapper at Beverly's with all the days of the week written in cursive--creating the PERFECT backing!
And thanks to a little planning ahead, I was able to use a spare half square triangle block folded in half to create my quilt label. Once I penned on all the information, I pressed it in half and basted it in the corner of my quilt back. Then the binding wrapped around to the back and stitched down, tucks in all the raw edges of my label, adding one last burst of color to the quilt back.
