Free Motion Friday - Triangle Scales

This is the last free motion pattern from my April quilt for the always fabulous Island Batik Ambassador's Adventurous Applique challenge.  I'm calling it Triangle Scales.

Start by making a triangle with sides 1 to 2 inches long.

Stitch over 1/4 of an inch and then echo the triangle on the OUTSIDE of the original triangle.  When you get to the top make a circle of any size you'd like.  Mine are about 1/2 inch or so.  

Travel to where you want to start your next triangle and repeat.  You can see a whole bunch of them all put together here.  

And the final quilt before binding!  The Triangle Scales go all the way around the outside edges.  They were fun to do and very modern, something I'm trying to embrace more of late.

If you love free motion be sure to stop back tomorrow where I'll debut my new quilt for May's Island Batik Ambassador has graffiti quilting!

I hope you get to quilt today!
