I have always been obsessed by pattern, geometrical shapes, doodling such things when on the phone. At the moment, I am absorbed by triangles and what I can make from them, a quilt, a pillow, another quilt.
Should I make the triangles in a regular pattern or just throw them in and see what happens?
Everywhere I look, there are triangles, clearly they are hot right now.
I probably won't be able to get away with filling the kids rooms with them (checked - and it's a definite no).
But I can subtly infiltrate other corners of the house with triangles, the rest of the family would never see them coming.
But what about colour? I have been obsessing about that too, more to follow. I can't decide whether to be patient and wait for fabric that I know will arrive soon, or just get stuck in.
See - both random and all mixed up, these triangles look amazing in a quilt.
Or, I could use tiny triangles to create a massive triangle.
Katy very kindly sent me some thangles, I have to admit I was a bit mystified having read the instructions they come with, but after watching this video - I realise they are genius.
This sneak of some upcoming fabric by Cloud 9 fabrics sealed it for me, look at all the different shapes the triangles create. Surely they are the perfect shape.
And oh look, further geometry, this little beauty means I have no excuse not to get sewing. She is so clever, I may even be able to read a book while she gets busy with the Thangles. She arrived on Valentines day, sigh, more to follow on my new true love.
