This is the second Opposing Triangles that I’ve pieced and my long arm quilter friend Krista Withers has quilted. The first has been traveling with the modern quilts in the International Quilt Market and Festival Exhibit for about a year. When Krista’s exhibit at Island Quilter came up she asked me if I would make another top for her to quilt and have as her own.
Because I just plain L-O-V-E this quilt I’ve been itching to get some photos before the quilt went back to Krista. We’ve never managed to find the time until yesterday’s gorgeous Seattle day.
There’s quite a mix of fabrics for the triangles. Echino, Kona, Alexander Henry Heath and Mirror Ball all surrounded by white Kona and placed into an Osnaburgh background. I aligned them so that they travel one into another for a zig zagged effect.
Krista’s quilting on it is stellar of course and sinks into the Osnaburgh and wool batting nicely. My favorite of the quilting are the subtle moons quilted in here and there. There’s a balanced of straight line quilting with the outlined triangles and more whimsical quilting in the background.
Fremont was hopping and we made use of the park area under the Aurora Bridge by the lake.
It’s not looking like the weekend weather will be as nice. I’m off for a run before the rain comes and then a day of sewing. Tomorrow I’m a spoiled brat and will be hanging out and teaching a Psychedelic Baby Block workshop with some of my favorite students.
Have a great weekend!
