When Beth from Plum and June decided to take her Monday link up party on the road, I was thrilled when she asked me to host. Although we have never met, I love her sewing style. She recently finished this sweet improv quilt that is absolutely adorable. Maybe we share some of the same tastes since we are both moms to three little girls?
My favorite part of quilting is figuring things out. Not one to follow a pattern (or ever have success trying to), I like to just go with an idea and see what turns out, like this quilt top I made for the Pantone Emerald Challenge.
This was my first time using triangles, so I just bought a set of templates called Tri-Rec rulers. Originally I planned for the oblong space to be a hexagon shape, but didn’t use equilateral triangle templates (whoops). So when the space turned out oblong, I put those little diamonds in there to fill up the centers.
The rulers made sewing triangles together a breeze. I just wish I had used the right kind of triangle!
Now for the fun stuff! Here are the rules for the link-up party:
1. Link up any recent sewing/quilting post.
2. In your post or on your blog, please include either a text link or a button letting people know about this link up.
3. Visit at least the two bloggers who link up before you and everyone who visits you from this post.
4. WHEN THE LINK ASKS FOR YOUR NAME, TELL ME WHAT KIND OF PET YOU HAVE. My middle daughter wants a cockatiel for her birthday, and I keep thinking how cool it would be to have a magician make it appear at her party.
