You may have already seen this two-fabric quilt floating around the SQ blog. It was featured in the post Should You Prewash Fabric? I made this Triangle Jitters quilt a couple years ago and it's one I actually kept for myself. Not only that, this simple yet stately piece is the only quilt I keep in my bedroom. Quite the honor!
There are many variations of the Triangle Jitters quilt pattern – some are scrappy and some are colorful. The pattern itself is written for 3 separate color blocks and a background fabric; however, if you combine Colors 1-3 into one group, like I did here, you can create a completely different look!
Believe it or not, this quilt was made entirely from my fabric stash and an IKEA duvet. I have lots of cream, natural and ivory solids in my scrap bin, so it wasn't hard to scrape together enough for a throw quilt. I love the added texture the various background shades bring to this design. In my opinion, it accentuates its uniqueness and handmade quality while still remaining simple and chic.
If you're interested in making a quilt just like this, but don't have a basket full of solid cream fabric at your fingertips, I recommend getting an assortment of these solid shades....
Two-Fabric Triangle Jitters Quilt
- Background: An assortment of cream fabric possibly including: Kona Snow, Kona Bone and Kona Ivory
- Colors 1-3: Gray striped IKEA duvet - I can't find this exact duvet on the IKEA website, but this striped Essex will give you a very similar look.

Even though I made this two-fabric quilt a while ago, this afternoon as the snow fell in beautiful nickel-sized flakes, I ran upstairs and grabbed it for a quick photoshoot in our neighborhood park. Being the good sports that they are, the Quilts family accompanied me. Everyone got pretty soggy, but lucky for us there are no shortage of dry quilts waiting at home.
Here they are trudging home. Aren't they troopers?
