Today is the last day of 2020 and I don't think
anyone will wish that this year could have lasted longer.
On this last day of the year,
I have one more finish in my Hidey Hole.
The quilting mojo has not been here recently,
even though I've been working on other crafty things.
Then this past week the itch started...
I pulled out a pile of triangles I had cut from Kaffe scraps
and started to play with them.
More triangles needed to be cut to add some more color
and fabrics and the neutral fabric was chosen.
After playing around with the pieces on my design wall,
this is what came to be.
There is something about triangle shapes that just draws me.
Maybe it's the simplicity of the design... I don't know.
My original thought was to add more rows to make the quilt longer
and have the triangles pointing down.
Then I decided that I like them pointing to the side.
I had this piece of Anna Maria Horner fabric in my
stash and it made the perfect backing.
Some simple straight line quilting was done
and the quilt is finished.
This will go in the donation pile.
While I was looking for backing fabric for this quilt,
I pulled backing fabrics for three other quilts that have
been waiting to be finished.
Making the backs for quilts is my least favorite part of quilting.
The backing fabrics were found and sewn together, batting was cut
and now these three quilts are ready for basting.
The thing that struck me with these four quilts....
(the three waiting to be basted and the one I just finished)
all of them have been made using Kaffe scraps!
I do have other fabric in my stash,
but these Kaffe scraps keep multiplying and NEED to be used!
And since I had triangles that didn't get used for the first
quilt mentioned in this post,
Another quilt is on the design wall.
