After making the Lombard Street quilt and sending it off to the shop where I’ll be teaching that pattern, I decided to make a little one. (The pattern includes three sizes.)
I cut the triangles from my 3-1/2 inch scraps, and had almost enough scraps to cut all 200 triangles–very little yardage was used up for this part of the process.
I decided on purple for the background and made a few test blocks. Looking at the test blocks, I particularly liked the triangle with the one big dot in the middle. I also decided these triangles would look better with a light grey background, so naturally I had to make another quilt to use that purple background fabric 😉
I love dotted fabric, so I looked through my stash,finding about 30 different fabrics with dots of some kind. I cut another 200 triangles and here are the sample blocks. Aren’t they cute? More later…
