Now that this one has arrived back to its owner, I can share it! This is a pattern under construction by my customer Terri, and she wanted something simple to go with the overall simplicity of the quilt, and something that wasn’t full-on custom or too boring. At first I thought I would do a zig zag to mimic the triangles, but then I thought it would be nice to have something slightly curved but still keeping some points in there. The triangles are also a little wonky, so I wanted something that has some irregularity in size and shape. The hardest part was not being uniform! I didn’t want this simplicity to look computerized or too much like a mattress cover, and I wanted to play with the improvy feel. This was the result:
The triangles are the star, as they should be, and the quilting gives a nice subtle texture. Inexpensive quilting doesn’t have to be uniform or boring!
