My new favourite quilt
Love those colours. Love those triangles. Love this quilt top.
If you're going to learn any patchwork skills, making half-square triangles is definitely one you'll want to master. They're not hard, and are oh, so versatile. There are heaps of tutorials out there, so give it a go. A good one to start with is this one by Lindsey Sews over on the Sew, Mama, Sew blog. It teaches you how to make eight at a time!
The sketchy, solids are called Painter's Canvas by Laura Gunn and were purchased at The Stitching Post in Arrowtown way back at Easter. The lovely print is called Bazaar Style by Pat Bravo and was purchased separately here in town from at Needle 'N Thread. That they all go so nicely together was just a happy accident.
Fingers crossed that I can get my hands on more of that lovely print for the back!
