Orientation Station!

Well folks!  That's it for Project Quilting, Season 5!  Except for off season and bonus challenges -- hooray!  This experience has been amazing, and I am so thankful for it!  I've grown a lot, learned a lot, have made 6 great projects, and have won some prizes!!!  Woohoo!  Now on to this week's quilt!

This week's challenge was to incorporate triangles.  I started by browsing the half-square triangle quilts on pinterest.  I loved this pin, and wanted to make something similar as a sort of table runner/decoration for the area where we prepare our tea and coffee in the morning (no, all day).  I am so thrilled with how it came out (other than the binding -- I wish I had chosen a different color.  Oh well, not redoing it!).  I love the two-tone background creating secondary arrows.  I love that these are not all colors I would have typically chosen, but they work fantastically with the space where it will live.  It's thanks to Pink Castle Fabric's color inspiration club that I even had these to begin with.  I think it will add a little brightness to those early morning routines.  Because of the triangles and its location in our home, I have named it "Orientation Station".  The finished size is 64"x 13".  I create in Broomfield, CO.

Because no photo shoot is complete without some posing.  Who wouldn't have tea with these cuties!

Aren't these teas so pretty?!  I found them on sale at Whole Foods, so I snatched up a bunch.  As well as being pretty, they are also quite tasty.

The voting post will be here after noon Sunday if you're interested!  Thanks for reading!  :)
