I got great news yesterday night! I have a quilt accepted in QuiltCon 2016. Yeah! It’s a quilt I have made for the Triangle Quilt Challenge using the EZ Quilting Triangle Templates. I had signed-up for the challenge and received the mini 45 degree triangle. I was happy to have the opportunity to play with triangles once again. But,those triangles were small! Their final size was 2″ wide.
I love playing with reflections and triangles. So, I went with a design similar to my Amalgam quilt. But this time, I wanted to highlight contradictions: color contrast, line directions, foreground/background. I had the perfect white and navy stripe fabric for this combined with some matching solids.
This quilt was inspired to me by my youngest boy. He is gentle and affectionate, but also strong-willed. I guess that this will become his strength in the future. It will help him climb mountains and achieve the goals that he will set for him-self.
The final size of the quilt is 30″ x 39″. For the quilting, I went with straight line quilting. I wanted to integrate the triangles in the borders, so I left some triangle shapes unquilted. Here are clos-up of the quilting.
I had thought of taking pictures of my quilt outside for my blog post. But since the weather is not cooperating, I decided to use the picture I took for my submission at QuiltCon. When I’ll have a chance I’ll take other pictures with some of the back. Let’s hope that we do get some snow before Christmas!
