I started piecing this quilt in a class with Marianne Hatton in September 2013. Marianne calls this workshop, "It Takes Two Triangles." Well, it takes two sizes of triangles, but actually 432 pieces! We were asked to bring a gradation of six fabrics in two colors. Each quilter chose her own block design to add to the variety. We then pieced 36 unique blocks from our 12 prints.
I played and rearranged for a couple of days before deciding on the final layout. The top was finished within days of the class, and then it sat for several months. Ripening.
I was finally ready to quilt it in July. The spiral quilting was more fun than I expected. This quilt really was a joy to work on from start to finish.
I was happy to rescue the orange DS Quilts print from the clearance rack at JoAnn's for the backing. For the binding, I used two V & Co ombres that were in my stash. If you're new here, orange has become my signature color and turquoise is my daughter's color, so there's plenty of both in my stash.
