Field Study Triangles


I never quite got this quilt out of my system.  I knew I wanted to explore it a bit more.  I also wanted to try using two background colors together that were very similar in value.



And I had a fat eighth bundle of Field Study that was begging to be used, so I cut one triangle from each piece in this line, (except for one unfortunate piece that was hiding under another pile and escaped my rotary cutter!)

I had a party putting this one together.  I was celebrating having a design wall again!  I'm actually not sure what I did without it...


The pink is a Kaffe Fasset shot cotton which I love, although unfortunately I can't tell you the exact name.  I would use shot cottons as my solid all the time if I could.  Yes, they are a bit lighter weight, and they fray easily, but I just love the texture and feel of them.  So soft!

I really wanted to link up with the Blogger's Quilt Festival this year, so that's why I'm posting again.  I know I've been pretty busy here the last week with the Value Quiltalong!

So if you haven't checked out the festival, please do!  It's just a big bunch of amazing quilts all in one place!

  2. Stunning. I love the two colored background. I'd probably use shot cottons all the time too, if I could afford them.

  17. I just realized this week with the value quilt along that you've re-started blogging on a regular basis. That is great. I particularly love your Brrr! Triangle quilt. This variation is also really nice. It looks so soft with the pink shot cotton.

  22. I really love your placement here especially mixing the white and pink backgrounds. It's interesting how there is so much diversity in this lime and you used on,y one of each that it looks scrappy.
