And also because I just bought her latest fabric line, Fibs & Fables and was itching to cut into it.
I started by thinking I was going to follow a pattern in a booklet I'd bought to accompany the Triangler ruler so I duly strip pieced two fabrics with different values and started cutting.
But by the time I'd done a fair amount of cutting, I'd gone right off the idea of following a pattern and just decided to play around with the triangles and see what I cam up with.
Which is how I ended up thinking this might not be a bad idea.
Even by my broad standards, it felt just a little too distractingly chaotic.
Solids felt too hard and restrictive so I went with a linen text fabric I found.
And sewed it all up to make this.
Then it was back to more random cutting to make it a border.
Because I felt it needed one.
And then it just felt balanced and finished so it was on to quilting it.
It feels rich and moody and luxurious and eclectic and I LOVE it.
The back has the left over border strips because I never work out beforehand the amounts I'll need.
It's too restrictive.
I'd rather guesstimate and then use any leftovers on the back.
|Oops...missed a couple of parallel quilting lines there|
And that's it.
My last complete quilt finish for 2015.
