Sunday sketch #160

Just when you thought I’d moved on from chevrons

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #160

I’m still playing with them. They’re so fun to overlap, and they create such interesting secondary shapes when they do.

I’m such a big fan of orange and hot pink together! I originally designed this with a white background, but then remembered how much I hate making quilts with white backgrounds (because it’s a pain to get rid of all the stray coloured threads from the underside of the quilt top before quilting…!)

This one would be easy to make into a quilt. I know I always say that! But in this case, it’s actually just a bunch of squares with stitch-and-flip corners. Tilt your head to the side and you’ll see what I mean.

I’m toying with the idea of actually making this one. If it worked out well, it might be suitable for submission to QuiltCon 2020… hmm, I wonder if I could manage to make it before the deadline in early December?!

I love the simplicity and colours in this Stars & 4-Patches quilt from Lisa Calle’s Vintage Modern Quilts site. (This is 1 of 21 quilts she made in 2013!!!) I might have to put this one on my list — at least it would get me some experience with triangles.

(Is Texas the quilt capital of the world…? So many good shops and blogs seem to be there….)
