triangle quilt: a work in progress
Ave's lethargy freed up some extra quilting time over the weekend. Perhaps I should have been cleaning the house or preparing a family meal plan for the week, but alas, I am still a selfish gal who wants to add yet another quilt to the linen closet. And the little dude only wants to eat toast right now anyway.
I tried to get all fancy by choosing a matching color thread to quilt within each triangle, instead of traditional white. Paired with a dark gray back cloth, I thought the different color thread would look pretty swell.
Inspired by this quilt, I decided to try quilting very thin lines in the expansive off-white areas surrounding the central triangles. It is time consuming and it's flattening it to a pancake, but man, it looks cool. I'm staggering the line direction to mimic a basket weave effect, which creates a little more excitement in the negative space.
I need to finish it soon, because as the weather gets warmer, the chore list grows and the family activities increase. We're also taking steps to put our house on the market (ahhhhhh!). Yeah, I know it's the worst time, but we're going to give it a shot and see what happens. But, guess what that means for you dear readers? More Before and After posts, as we have a serious bathroom renovation to tackle before we can list.
