Quiltmaker Magazine has a theme to each of their issues. Jan/Feb '14 issue's theme was Color. We all know I love color. So I jumped on the opportunity to create something colorful! I also love geometry. For this quilt, I took an equilateral triangle, and cut it into 6 equal pieces. Alternating black and colors, I created a gradient that falls from the top left corner to the bottom right.
This quilt was made entirely with Timeless Treasure Tonga Batiks. They are so rich in color. It was like Christmas morning digging into a generous box of vibrant colored batiks. It is a great project to use your stash and scrap piles!
I love how this simple paper-piecing block creates secondary hexagons and pinwheels. My Mom noticed the pinwheels right away and decided to quilt spirals in each of them. She used a light orange thread. We think it might become our new neutral =] Seems only fitting!
We are both currently paper-piecing a bigger, super scrappy, orange and white version. It is going to look like a creamsicle! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out Quiltmaker's Jan/Feb '14 issue.
