My design process
You might ask what happened to my earlier idea to using my Betty Dear to make wagon wheel blocks? Well, I opened up a drawer in my sewing cabinet and my eye fell on the triangle template. I've always wanted to make a triangle quilt, and I quickly envisioned a riot of diamonds, a la Kaffe Fassett. After cutting out some of the fabric and playing around with the triangles, I decided I didn't like the diamonds nor did I care for the "busyness" of the prints, so I gathered up some solids. I used some depression-era FQ I had picked up several years ago at a quilt show, supplementing with some Kona solids, and voila, a quilt pattern was born!
