I hemmed and hawed all week about whether I was going to do something for this week’s challenge: Challenge 1 – Illuminating + Ultimate Gray. I was trying to explain to my husband what Pantone is and what they do. If you want to know more about it, here is a link to Pantone’s own explanation.
For me, I wanted to try something new. For 2021 I am trying things that I have put off trying. So I picked 2 fabrics I loved; one a yellow and gray with strips of newsprint and another with triangles. Playing with improv triangles was my goal and I would use strips and other pieces as needed to fill in the piece.
I made a few triangles and strips and then decided I wanted some curvy flying geese. I didn’t have a lot of fabric, made a quick pattern in Electric Quilt 8* with the swath tool. I’ll make a little tutorial on how to make this in EQ8 for my Tips/Tutorials on the 22nd! Meanwhile, if you want to play here is a sheet of some of what I drew.
I plugged in my new BSR and made a little triangle quilting motif and it was done! Maybe 3 hours of work, but a lot of cogitating in the background.
And for the finish I did a facing with corner triangles…see my tutorial here. And, a little label in the top corner. That is all folks, gotta get this post up before the carriage turns into a pumpkin!
