This is just beautiful!
This is lovely. Thanks for the review of the pattern, too!
That is amazing! Thanks for sharing.
It took me a while to realise what you meant by the stripe, but once I saw it I think, I'm not convinced by it - I prefer the plainer black. But I would also say that this is fabulous and whatever you do with it it will look stunning when finished!
Jenniesthreads I had a similar comment on flickr this AM, someone thought that no matter what I put in the middle, it was pretty neeto (my words not hers). Actually I ran quick to the LQS before it closed today and found a nice swirly grey. So I went with option: none of the above. Thanks for commenting, I will take the project out of distress. I had never used that feature before, so it was tesing that out too. Thanks for your help.
Thanks for all the comments on this project. The pattern pieces really lend themselves to playing around, and I am glad I stumbled on it. Yes, it's paper piecing, but none of the paper pieces are particularly hard to do, just organizing is a pain. Zooming through the project at lightning speed (for me). :)
Stunning. And your colours really ping against the black.
Love your colors! You are having fun!
Were you a math teacher? I love this very geometric quilt but don't think I would have the patience for all the odd angles.
Oh yes I am having a lot of fun with these colors and going for the 2nd round of this pattern. Loved that I was able to get the pattern pieces & use them in a new way.
And yes Seeneed I wasn't a math teacher, but I took many layers of math during physics degree, and taught physics, so that's lower level math (alg & trig & geometry used many days oh so long ago). I love the geometric, but there is really no difference with the odd angles. 60 degrees isn't "that hard" as long as you keep in mind all the points and stuff. If I hadn't sewn the middle down, I would just have 8 rows to sew together. As it is sewn down, I will need to do a couple of Y seams, but only a few. Very fun to do!
