To The Right Quick March!

Finally I can take part in the Finish it up Friday linky over at Crazy Mom Quilts because I do actually have a finish - hooray!!
 
To the Right Quick March!
 
When I started this project I thought it was going to be for the schnitzelandboo mini quilt swap over on IG, but it's now going to be a challenge piece.  I recently joined the Quilters' Guild and then found their Modern Group facebook page over here ..... Well one thing led to another and I find I am now a member of the Modern Group aswell!  This makes me laugh in some ways because I don't really label myself or my creations ...... in fact this is only the second 'modern' quilt I have made (the first being Straight Line Bow).  It's also the first mini quilt I have done but definitely not the last.
 
 
 
 
It's funny because as I was working on it the triangles were always oriented with the coloured tip at the top ...
 
 
 

It was only when I came to sew on the hanging sleeve that I realised there were four positions it could be in.  I turned it through 360 degrees and much preferred the triangle pointing to the right.  Decision made and the name 'To the Right Quick March' flashed straight into my head - wonderful!  I still have to make and sew a label on and then get it in the post tonight. x

  3. Oh I just love this. Isn't it funny how quilts just seem to decided what THEY want to be? Such a great name, too. Fabulous Friday finish!
    (The first swap mini I made I couldn't decided how it should be hung so I put little triangle "holders" on each corner and the let recipient decided. I've since spotted it on IG hanging in her sewing room. She has it hanging the way I would!)
