Antique Triangle Quilt

This fabulous triangle quilt was brought in to Needle & Thread, the quilt store that is oh-so-handily just down the street from my house.

It just needed a few minor repairs, and Marlene, the store's proprietress, offers that service to customers.

Isn't it just wonderful? Great fabrics, and a simple, effective quilting design. Love it!

just the sort I love too, scrappy and geometric. I believe this pattern is called 'thousands of pyramids'

I love the fabrics but really appreciate you showing the quilting. I've been contemplating a scrappy triangle quilt myself and always love quilting ideas. Those stitches look tiny!

Civil War era fabrics. A great quilt. I wonder if it is a charm quilt.
