Inspiration of the Week - triangle victory

This week's inspiration comes from Svetlana of s.o.t.a.k. handmade who turned her "triangle fiasco into a successful quilt!" Svetlana tried multiple methods to get her triangles lined up before giving up in defeat. Thanks to the comments she received from blogland, she was back at it just a few days later and turned it around into this gorgeous quilt!

We love the colors she chose! And quilting with aqua thread to match the binding is delicious.
