Pointed Statement

Pointed Statement by Amy Friend

I am so pleased to share this completed quilt today!  I showed you a few of the blocks a number of weeks ago.  I designed my own paper pieced pattern for this quilt and pieced it using 5 shades of Kona quilting cottons.

I scattering the colors rather randomly while piecing, intentionally favoring the peaches over the greys.

I really love the colors in this quilt; they are most accurately represented in this photo. They are so soothing and at the same time fresh and uplifting.  I worked on this quilt while waiting for spring to arrive here in New England and I think that the colors were just right for that.

I chose to quilt using straight lines and three shades of Aurifil 50 weight thread because the vertical rows of stitching work well with the vertical orientation of the triangles.  As you can see in this detail, I quilted with my lines spaced 1/4″ to 1/2″ apart.

I used one of the prints from Art Gallery Fabrics’ Maker collection for the backing along with bits of leftover solids from the front.  And I bound the quilt in the background fabric color, Kona Light Flesh…an awful sounding name for a pretty color!  The finished quilt measures 48″ x 60.”  My mom suggested the name, Pointed Statement, which seems just perfect.

I am planning on offering this pattern for sale soon. It’s in the works!



  1. Oh this is just amazing! I agree…the colors are gorgeous. And so is the quilting!

  2. I really love it, and the quilting is a perfect compliment to the pattern.

  3. LOVE!!

  4. This is amazing!

  5. I love this quilt! The corals and indigo are superb together.

  6. Yes, pointed statement is a great name Amy. The quilt is beautiful and I love your choice of straight line quilting, works well with the directional nature of your quilt. I am very attracted to triangle patterns and this is really something modern and original that I haven’t seen before. Great one!
    Happy Spring greetings from Switzerland!

    I think you’ve outdone yourself with this one, Amy! The colors are perfect, but the odd repetition is what makes it so special. Fifty years from now I can see this coming up on some “quilts from the past” posting – it’s timeless. Great job!

  8. Lovely looks fantastic. Great quilting too.

  9. Oh my gosh that turned so beautiful!! I know I always say this is the best yet but really it is the best yet!!!

    Wonderful quilt. The colors are great and the quilting 1/2, 1/4 inches looks good.

  11. Love it! Fresh Kona colors with the ever popular greys and in triangles: another beauty. Well done!

  12. I can’t wait for the pattern to come out! The quilt and colors are lovely!

  13. I agree with the other comments … love it! What a perfect balance of soft tones — evoking a candid, random feeling. This makes me feel like I’m in a magical forest. Beautiful work.

  14. Just stunning Amy!!! I love the colors and design. I can’t believe how much patience you must have to make it through all that straight line quilting. I have a quilt on my studio floor that has been waiting over a year for me to continue my 1/2″ apart straight lines. Wonderful job!! Love the different colors of quilting thread.

    Absolutely beautiful quilt design. Love your choice of color….and the distribution of the peaches and greys. the quilting just couldn’t be better….I agree the vertical lines really compliment the triangles beautifully. Love to give it a try….Will it be offered in multiple sizes? A special baby is coming into my life soon…:)!

  16. So cool. Definitely worth making a pattern!

  17. Beautiful!

    Love your spacing of the different colors of quilting thread across the quilt with the linear quilting! Your Art Gallery fabric on the back is perfect! Did you have it when you chose the Kona colors for the quilt or was it a serendipitous find later? Great job!

  19. REALLY looking forward to the quilt pattern! Ronda

  20. Love this quilt!
