I recently had the opportunity to test another fun pattern from Tied with a Ribbon – the Heatwave Quilt. I haven’t really played much with equilateral triangles in the past, so I was eager to try something new. And it did not disappoint!
Since the pattern is now available for purchase in both PDF and printed form, I can reveal my finished quilt:
Many thanks to my husband, John, for patiently holding up the quilt so I could photograph it in the bright sunshine!
Those of you with sharp eyes may notice that I quilted this quilt with continuous curves. Here’s a close-up in progress:
This quilting style works the same on triangles as it does on squares; instead of stitching each shape individually, I stitched in long lines, switching sides at each intersection.
If you’d like to learn more about continuous curve quilting with a walking foot, I have two previous posts:
All in all, I was super happy with how the gentle curves complemented and softened the strong lines of the piecing.
To sum up, here’s the details from the Tied with a Ribbon website:

NOTE: the pricing on the website is in Australian dollars, not US. Check with your local quilt shop if you’d like to order a paper pattern without having it shipped internationally.
I can report that I found the pattern clear and easy to follow. I always appreciate when a designer includes a nice range of sizes, and here Jemima went the extra mile – she even includes a complementary pillow!
I hope those of you who may try this pattern enjoy it as much as I did.
