I love to just start sewing with no pattern. Improv is such a creative release for me. So after attending Carolyn Friedlander’s lecture and trunk show in March, I felt emboldened to dive into a new project. I also felt the urge to actually cut into some of the most hoarded fabrics of my stash, which I actually have yet to do a month later…. hmmmm. The benefit of using your favorite fabrics, is then you get to enjoy them in your finished work!
I started with the transparent idea, and chose triangles as my tool of choice.
My initial fabric pull was much more colorful and diverse then these 9 colors. But after much deliberation, I chose to keep it minimal.
The quilting turned my triangle quilt into a mountain scene, with subtle trees, wind and water. It was refreshing to complete a mini-quilt, as it takes a fraction of the time a full size quilt usually takes me. This is my first mini, and will be the first on my wall!
