Hello dear friends! I hope you are fine! Sometimes we end up with totally different project that the one we start. I’m sure that happens to you, too.
Saturday I started to plan something with Paper pieces …
It didn’t lead yet where I had planned. If I manage to continue that idea, I let you know. Piecing those little half of half triangles was very unpleasant, so I thought to try First with triangles.
I was happy to be able to use again my NEW Hex N More ruler! This quilt had a name before I started even later I chose an other name. I want to keep the First name for the other Project where I ‘need’ it more. But that’s why I started to pick greens and blues.
First I throw the triangles randomly to my design wall (sorry, no photo of that) but very soon I saw there secondary pattern which I really liked: cubes. Long time I have wanted to make a quilt with cubes but didn’t have any idea on Saturday morning that it was going to be The Day.
It’s all about colours and how you look! It’s not easy to explain how to look but try to see the cubes. Dark blue is the inside of the cube, green is left side and turquoise/blue is right side. Cubes are in Lines and the light turquoise is the shadow of the cube.
If you turn it and look from the other side, the green is inside, turquoise is front/left side and blue is right side. Now there is also white cube which has light turquoise ‘bottom’ or shadow. Fun or what?!
I like the blue to be inside of the cube, so I turned my blocks like this. It’s fun how many shapes there can be found with triangles …
… diamond, jewel, hexagon, cube …
This Project went on again by sections as the ‘Pic Nic on The Beach’ but of course this was much more simple. First I just made some parts and then started to measure how big I want this quilt to be and then added more triangles and white.
This is a baby quilt and measures about 32″ x 42″ with the border.
There are lots of pattern like this with many shapes and secondary patterns on. This is my first make and I love it! In the beginning I wasn’t sure about the colour combination, but now I really like it.
We used to Live more close to the airport … but not under the ‘highway’! Now they often pass over our heads …
… I don’t mind if they don’t make too much noise … it’s nice to think WHO comes, WHO goes, where they go … what hopes they have for their holidays … what memories they Carry home from their holidays … do they come back to stay … as I did!
Now have to decide how to quilt this one but First have to find space to baste it.
