She's also started designing quilt patterns using Jenny's ruler and when she put a shout out for pattern testers I stuck my hand up.
This is her Deco Zig Zag pattern.
It reminds me of a 'mermaids purse' but maybe that's just me.
Either way, it was extremely enjoyable to sew - the pattern is very well written.
It is fat quarter friendly (two blocks from each FQ) but I chose to make it from random scraps of turquoise blue, mainly because I had some light turquoise linen knocking around that I wanted to use for the background. It wasn't quite enough so I interspersed it with a Kona cotton in a similar colour.
The claret block I put in just because I thought it would add a bit more interest. I think I'll probably hand-quilt round each block with Perle cotton, machine quilt the rest of the negative space and bind it in a claret colour too.
