My friend Sara Nephew loves 60 degree triangles, and is always creating new quilt patterns for her friends to test. This pattern looked so interesting, I volunteered to try it. Here's the finished quilt:
All Sara's patterns are made using a 60 degree triangle ruler. Here's a close up:
Not sure if I can explain the process, but you make rectangles from two pieces that are cut with a 60 degree slant in the middle. Some of the cuts go one way, and some are reversed. This is one of the most challenging quilts I have EVER pieced. I had to have a road map, lay out all the pieces for each block, then carefully piece them to match the pattern. It was so complicated, I gave up about half way through, and gave it all back to Sara. She finished piecing the top, adding in some more dark fabrics to add a little more contrast. Then I added the border, and quilted it.
For the past year it has been with Sara's partner Marci Baker, waiting to be photographed for a new book. Now the book is on hold, so Marci sent the quilt back to me. It is so bright and cheery, I am glad to have it back!
Not sure if there is a finished pattern for this, let me know if you are interested, or get in touch with Marci via her web site.
