More triangles

I was recently asked to make another of this quilt

Usually, when I "remake" a quilt I change things about it; the layout, colors, back, etc.  However, Ashley wanted it to be as close to the original as possible.  Since I was about to move and the prospect of not having to take the time to debate and question the block layout (as I usually do) was so appealing, I happily consented to making a replica.

Unlike the original, I did choose to double stitch around each of the seams like.

This combination of neutrals with a dash or orange is a happy one for me.  That, combined with the uniform quilting gives the back a pleasant yet interested look.

Of all the fabrics I frequently use for my bindings, this Joel Dewberry herringbone is one of my most favorite.  I really should buy yards and yards and yards of it.  :)
