Triangle Baby Quilt // For Emerson

I am SO excited to share my brand-spankin’-new nephew’s baby quilt with you today along with a few peeks into the sweetest nursery ever!

Equilateral-Triangle-Baby-Quilt

I’m not sure I asked my sister if she wanted me to make “the” baby quilt {you know, the one that matches the nursery and hangs on the crib as you anxiously await the arrival} or if I told her I was making it, but I was nice enough to consult with her on design and color. You can see other likes as well as nursery inspiration on her Pinterest board, Little Cookie.

She picked this triangle quilt by Crafty Blossom as the inspiration, which lucky for me, was based on See Kate Sew’s FREE tutorial {yea, no extra mental work for Auntie!!}.

I modified the quilt to use equilateral triangles which made/makes for much quicker stitching as you don’t have to offset your triangles as you piece them, nor worry about pairing them up correctly since they are equal on all sides {win!}. I also made the quilt smaller {40″ x 52″} than the tutorial, but did stick with the fabric placement pattern.

{If there is enough interest, I’d be happy to give more details on my modification.}

As cute as the quilt turned out, I have to show you a few photos of the rest of this “Little Gentleman’s Nursery” … I’m trying to figure out where I’d sleep so I can be roomies with Emerson.

  1. Love the quilt! And the nursery is absolutely adorable!

  2. Great quilt – goes perfectly with the room. Loves the matching knitted blanket as well. Congratulations on being an aunt :)

  3. So thankful for Emerson’s quilt (and for his Auntie too)! It will take him a while to appreciate it, but let’s be honest- his nursery is really for mama until he is old enough to decide what he wants. Fingers crossed he’ll get our good taste 😉

  4. SO cute! I love the colors!

    Where did you find that adorable binding tape?

    What were your measurements for the triangles?

    • I can’t remember for sure, but I think I kept the height the same as the tutorial I used and then changed the width to be an equilateral triangle. Unfortunately, the quilt lives at my sister’s house so I can’t measure it. Hope that helps a little!
