Sunday sketch #256

It’s autumn in Australia. Leaves changing colour, blowing everywhere, scrunching underfoot.

It felt like a good time for some triangles!

There’s a few ways this design could be translated into a quilt. I think it would work best with foundation paper piecing using freezer paper templates. You could make the templates as long as you like, and just keep adding to them. Otherwise, you could turn the whole design on point and make it using half-square triangles, but that would introduce a lot of extra seams. You could do flying geese instead, but you’d still have some extra seams (just half as many). Or you could use templates for the triangles, and just piece them in diagonal rows, then match the rows up carefully so all the triangles are aligned.

Like I said, I think it would work best with freezer paper piecing 🙂
