I've been playing on my EQ again. These fabrics are from the 'Dried Flowers' palette. A not too feminine but muted look that would go well in my sister in law's guest bedroom, where she needs a double sized quilt. She prefers dusty mauve, light lavender, beige, and country blues.
The SIL's the type of decorator who can go out and gather two handfuls of weeds by the side of the road, throw them in a chunky, chipped pitcher from the flea market, and suddenly she's got an elegant arrangement. :)
Here's a version with brights on black. Doesn't this look like a portion of those woven net bags you take to the beach stuffed with your towel, a paperback, and sunscreen?
My problem is, I'm beginning to think this would be a real booger to sew. You look at the individual pieces and think, "okay, a bunch of those indian hatchet type squares with an upper and lower triangle a different color.... that's easy." And then you look at the horizontal and vertical strips that connect them, and it still looks easy. BUT - there's not a straight side-to-side or diagonal or top-to-bottom seam anywhere. Would I get stuck in a morass of partial seams? Or heaven forbid, a quilt with set in seams?
A Pattern Is Just a Place to Begin
