Sherbet Pips Equilateral Triangles

I have been wanting to make an equilateral triangle quilt and decided to use my fabrics from Aneela Hoey's Sherbet Pips collection.

I have had these fabrics for a while and have talked myself out of using them several times.  I should at least wait until it gets cooler before making a quilt with these lovelies.  It isn't really scarf wearing weather yet (at least where I live), but I couldn't wait any longer.

I know many of you are familiar with this collection since it came out in 2011, but I thought I would share my favorites.  These little dogs are too cute and I love the scooter fabrics.  I am also crazy about the colors, especially the soft shades of pink and grey.

Ok... a few more favorites...  the little dog running with the scooters, the little dog riding the scooter, and the little snail on the move... just too cute.  I didn't really notice these little guys until I started cutting the fabric.

For a refresher course in cutting equilateral triangles, I looked around for a tutorial.  Faith from Fresh Lemon Quilts has a great tutorial that is short and sweet, but very specific and you can view it here: Cutting Equilateral Triangles.
