The invitation to the party this Saturday says 'strictly no presents.' Where I interpreted that to mean 'but secretly I'd like a quilt' I'm not sure.
But I have.
It's OK though as the quilt is made up entirely of scraps so really it isn't like I went out and bought a present or anything so it'll be fine.
I just took the triangle template that I used for this quilt, laid a strip of Kona Ash down the middle and then added random strips either side, dividing the triangles up into light and dark strips. Except for the middle/centre of the quilt where I did two of the triangles with the strips running horizontally across, so I would get a square effect.
Then I just played around with the triangles till I got a satisfying light/dark pattern going on.
The back is just some fabric to hand, spliced down the middle because it wasn't wide enough and then some wonky rectangles added in. I put one orange one in to stop it looking too safe.
Hand quilted with regular quilting cotton as well as a variety of perle colours.
What do you reckon?
Not technically a present is it?
Just a reuse of scraps really.
