Just when you thought I’d moved on from chevrons…
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….)
