The Rainbow Triangle 2018 Mystery Block Of The Month that I’ve been doing is based on some of the blocks in the Modern Triangle Quilts book by Rebecca Bryan of Bryanhouse Quilts.

Becca kindly sent me a copy of the book to review, and so that I could participate in the BOM, but I didn’t get a chance to read it all until Saturday.  Now I want to make all things triangle!

The book is divided into 3 sections, the first for those in the shape of equilateral triangles, the second in the shape of half square triangles and the third in the shape of isosceles triangles.

The brilliant thing about each section is that there are a certain number of base blocks – 36 equilateral triangles, 20 right triangles and 14 isosceles triangles which can be used either in one of the specific quilt patterns in the section, or you could use them in any other quilt patterns with that sort of shaped triangle.  I’m already thinking of places I could incorporate some of them!

Here are some of the cool and unusual quilt patterns that are in the book, all of which are made of a mixture of the base blocks, sometimes in multiple sizes:

I can’t wait to see what’s going to show up next in the mystery BOM (there’s still time to join!) but in the meantime, I might dust off that equilateral triangle ruler that I bought about 6 years ago because I thought it might be useful ;o)

I think this books would suit advanced beginners onwards, and experienced quilters will really appreciate the options for spicing up their quilts with some alternative triangle patterns.  Grab yourself a copy now!
