field of triangles #3
Another version of this quilt, I was intending to use this one as the pattern 'cover'. After I decided not to make it into a pattern, I sent it off to a new home. Yes, I still have another smaller version of this design that I made to be the crib size.
Oh well, I don't see it as time wasted, since I got finished quilts out of it, plus it's been a learning experience for me. Like some patterns are hard to write. Some maybe aren't meant to be written, or maybe I'm just not the one to do it! I know I need to start with something a bit simpler. I find this really hard to do though, since I have a phobia of writing a pattern that's too similiar to something already out there.
About this quilt though: I had the inspiration to make a hot pink and white quilt. I wanted it to be a more modern graphic look than what I generally make. Colorwise I find it very hard to stick to just two or three fabrics, and then solids at that! So of course I didn't quite manage it! I had to sneak in a couple of whimsical VW van triangles. And then I ran out of white solid in the top corner so I added that pink and white elephant print.
I knew all along that I would use black as my backing. The Jay Mccarroll acid green splotch from his Center City collection was perfect for the last bit of rebellious color for the binding!
Thanks so much for all your lovely comments on past posts! Due to being away and sickness etc, I haven't been getting in to the office, which is where I generally reply. I've been getting behind, which I don't like at all. Every comment that someone leaves just give me such a happy buzz:) So thanks again, and if i don't reply, please know that it's due to my spongy brain and less than organized ways, and i definitely read and appreciated it!
