Since there is no ocean view in AZ, most people head for the lake on holiday weekends. We aren't, but since I just took my Lady of the Lake quilt to the NQA show to use in my Medley class, I thought I would show it to you. The more I look at this small quilt, the more I want to make a larger version of it.
This is the only quilt I've made that has much pink in it. When I made it, I wanted to use some pinks and browns that I had. It was also a quilt where I was working on accuracy in piecing half-square triangle units of two different sizes.
I just love the way the half-square triangles make patterns where they meet. What do you think? What color would you make this pattern? Would you make it in "water" colors or maybe in "desert" colors? It's a simple pattern to make -- I mean really, how much more basic than two sizes of half-square triangles can you get?
I took a day off this week and made some progress on the stacked bricks. With the holiday weekend I hope to get Jeff's quilt pin basted and ready to quilt. Have to move a table to make enough floor space to pin bast this one! The pin-basting is NOT my favorite part of the quilting process. Any one relate?
Next time I'll post some red, white and blue quilts for you. Hope you have great plans for the holiday weekend.
Until next time -- keep on quilting!
