You can make the lines then clip them with a copy of the triangle or similar and have that above the coloured triangle. There currently is no vector fill available, at least to my knowledge.

Hi, Rolandas,

Are you looking for something like this:

Hi GDENBY,

yes, but as mentioned, when I try cut (subtract) triangle from merged lines, lines and triangle is disappearing. What I do wrong?

Which app are you using?

If you are using Affinity Designer 

You need to expand the stroke: (main menu at the top of the affinity app) Layer Expand Stroke, basically you are converting them from a curve/path that has a stroke into a thin shape that has a fill and can also have a stroke. Once you have expanded the stroke, you can boolean add them Layer > Geometry  > Add and the subtract the shape from the lines.

Another method if you are using Affinity Designer is to create a compound, the beauty in this is everything is still editable.

Hello! Thanks for helping! Yes, it's Affinity Designer. I made all steps by your first instruction. But result is not the same:) What wrong now?

Thanks! Yes, I tried this way. But when I try cut (subtract) triangle from merged lines, lines and triangle is disappearing.

Note that clipping is different from subtracting. Study the Layer panel in the example above by @gdenby, paying attention to the indentation of the layers below the 'parent' trapezoid layer.

It may also help to watch the Affinity Photo - Masking vs clipping layers video tutorial (it works the same in Affinity Designer & Affinity Publisher).

Hello, again, Rolandas,

The "boolean" operation, such as add or subtract, can only work when a curve can enclose an area. My example is made from many thin rectangles. Expanding a stroke will make something similar, but often adds many un-needed nodes. 

The boolean operations will work on those thin rectangle groups. BTW, they were made by "power duplication," so after making the first line-like thin rectangle allows many repetions in just moments.
