What materials did you use? "Blitzen" by Moda (Gray) cotton fabric (discovered in the Magical Jelly Roll Class). Two shades of "Essential" 100% Egyptian cotton satin finish thread (Connecting Fusible fleece. Spray basting.

What are you most proud of? This is the first time I worked with triangles. I am very pleased with the piecing and simple quilting.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take care to accurately cut and sew all pieces and segments which makes joining the rows and then the runner much easier as all points must line up exactly for the triangles to result in a flat straight runner. For extra body and a bit of weight consider fusible fleece instead of batting. However, note that spray basting does not work well with the fleece. Read the entire project and examine the layout diagram before deciding on your fabrics. I made assumptions about dark, medium, and light pairings and ended up wishing I'd purchased differently. I'm not completely pleased with the contrast in some of the segments. The runner came out nice but I think it would be better had I checked the diagram closer. In the end I also wish I had bought extra fabric - especially for piecing the binding.
