But it was on sale ...
This quilt top was so easy and relaxing to make because it's made of randomly paired half-square triangles. I love making half-square triangles! It's the only block I have truly mastered, mostly because I can trim it to size. And of course, the fabric is just so lovely.
Quilting this, on the other hand, wasn't easy ... at least at first. I decided to play with contrast in both shape and scale. This is my first time using a ruler base to do ruler work, and at first, it was terrifying. But after about 1/3 of the quilt, I realized I was much more comfortable!
In the foreground fabrics, I did a lot of geometric designs, and I highlighted a few patches and quilted a flower in them.
In the negative space, it is all about curvy, swirly designs. I had some fun echoing some of the triangle designs in the negative space too.
I had to sneak a feather in here somewhere! But it ended up being a big, showy feather that also divided up the space.
This is the 3rd quilt I completed on my longarm. While every quilt is a learning experience, this one really stretched me, but I'm so happy with the end result!
