    I’ve always loved this floating triangle pattern as the colors really appeal to me in your sample. Beautiful! I would make it a little wider by adding another panel for a wall hanging. Thanks for the great tutorial!

    The floating triangle wall hanging and table runner can add a lot of decorative interest in a contemporary setting. Can see where one could get quite creative with fabric choices.
