Triangulation - Project Quilting 9.2

Since I missed the first challenge because we were out of town I wasn't sure if I was going to try to make somethng for  the rest of the challenges, but come Saturday afternoon I really missed being part of the fun!  So, I pulled out two strips from and Island Batik Stash Builder roll, cut them into triangles with my Tri-Recs ruler and went to work piecing.  After a couple hours, I ended up with this:

My original plan was to have all the blue triangles facing the same direction and offset them by 1/2 the width of the triangle.  I changed my mind when I set them together and saw this fun streak of lighting running across my quilt!

I did a simple cross-hatch on the diagonal with Aurifil thread in a peachy color.

The backing is some leftover snowflake fabric:

The hardest part was finding something to bind it with!  I didn't have anything I liked to go with that teal/blue, but finally found this minty green in another one of the stashbuilder rolls and was happy with how that worked.

This will make a nice little mat on my bar.  It measures 13 x 18.5 inches.   Made in Coos Bay, OR. Linking up with Kim for Project Quilting 9.2
