Earlier this summer, I made this Mod Triangles Runner from my Improv fabric collection. It has a similar feel to my Triangle Toss Quilt Pattern but the blocks are smaller in scale and have fewer components making it an easier sew for the beginner.
The runner is made up of simply pieced, improvisationally sketched triangles that are “wonky” or asymmetrical. The blocks were then rotated into this layout so that they appear random which gives the runner some movement. The fabric placement is mixed up a bit, block to block, to add to the irregularity of the design.
I used 3 different threads from my Improv Aurifil Designer Collection to quilt this runner, again, adding more interest, along with the irregular spacing of the quilted lines. I chose the white, light gray and chartreuse shades. I am so pleased with the way that the screen print works for the background. It’s just as I hoped! It works as a textured solid but feels more modern due to the crosshatch design. It comes in three colorways–I hope you will try it!
If you would like to make this runner, the pattern can be found in the Benartex online magazine, Modern by the Yard.
