Trendy Triangles

Cath has given us another fun challenge at Moxie Fab World, and she calls it Trendy Triangles.  I loved all the examples she showed us and I dived in later the same day and started experimenting.  But I came up with nothing that pleased me.  Until I was browsing on Pinterest and found this quilt, which hit all my buttons, and it was made of TRIANGLES!

modern quilt - Half Moon Modern fabric in aqua, lime and grey.  Made by Ashli Smick


This pin doesn't take me to any blog, but it is identified as being made by Ashli Smick, using Half Moon fabric.  I just loved her colors and the uses of the chevrons and big dotty fabrics.  So I spent an afternoon trying to find some papers from my stash that would recreate this wonderful quilt.  How'd I do?


MFW Trendy Triangles

These papers came from as many different pads as their are patterns here. As I always do, after piecing it together, I ran it through an embossing folder by Darice called Simple Interlock.  And I popped the pieced panel above my card base.  I know there isn't a sentiment on it, but a simple white banner can be added when/if I need one.

I love these kinds of designs, where your brain forms different shapes depending on what your eyes focus on......I can see an Ohio Star block, squares within squares, and pinwheels, just to name a few.

Thanks for visiting today!

  3. This card is amazing - a great one for the challenge, Lin! It would not be that hard to actually sew this quilt together, once you figured out the fabric placement. My girlfriend has a wonderful design wall to play with placement of squares, etc. that works really great.
