This past weekend, my daughter was at a birthday party so I spent some quality time in my sewing space, tidying up and organizing. I found a baggie of triangle corners that I had accumulated in the course of making my Oceanic Supernova quilt. I loooove the colours in that Kona Solids collection ("Poseidon") and couldn't bear to part with even the smallest shard so I saved them for one of those "one day" projects.
I rewarded myself for finishing the Memory Quilt by playing this week. Those little triangles really wanted to be stitched onto a corner of a square of solid fabric. I found some Essex Linen in Natural in my stash and thought it looked kind of like sand so I went with it and then added in some Kona Bone for sparkle. This is how far I've progressed. The squares are cut at 4½".
Photos are a great way to see your project from afar - I can already see squares I need to move!
G saw it up on my design wall and when I said that the blue/green colours reminded me of sea glass, she said, "No, Mama. It looks like water!" So this project's name is definitely going to have to include Water.
I didn't work on anything else whatsoever this week so that wraps things up for today.

That is gorgeous! Absolutely fab...ReplyDelete
Great use of scraps..it reminds me of a pillow I recently made!ReplyDelete
What a great use of the triangles!!ReplyDelete
Love! The bone "sparkle" and the Poseidon tidbits are fab.ReplyDelete
I can't bear to throw out little bits either! Your quilt looks lovely and will be wonderful when finished. I am hoping for some Kona solids to come into our shoppe here, but nothing yet.ReplyDelete
I really like this. I have a bunch of plain white blocks which people have left messages on (for a memory quilt). I've been struggling with finding an interesting way to assemble them. I think I'll have to see how many have an open corner that could accommodate a little triangle like this because I really like this approach!ReplyDelete
I love this! I used to toss all my triangles (I know--horrors!!) but now they are saved for a project like this.ReplyDelete
it is beautiful Felicity - I wouldn't be able to throw a scrap of them away, either. Definitely beach sandy watery goodness!ReplyDelete
Very nice! I love the colors, and I too couldn't / can't throw away most of my little triangle scraps :-P.ReplyDelete
A lovely seawaterglass quilt! Essex natural does totally look like sand!ReplyDelete
I am in love with this. Truly.ReplyDelete
Pretty! It is fun to make something fantastic out of scraps too.ReplyDelete
I love it! I agree that it looks like water. Like crashing waves.ReplyDelete
Simply stunning - really love those oceanic colours with the linen.ReplyDelete
so very neatReplyDelete
It's very pretty...it does remind me of sand and sea glass:)ReplyDelete
This is great! It definitely reminds me of the beach.ReplyDelete
Excellent idea for using all those little triangles I've been saving up. The only idea I had was to make tiny little pinwheels but that was such a lousy idea, that I didn't even start. Oh, I also thought of very small HSTs, another loser idea. But this is fabulous!! Thank you!! At first I thought, you could use various lights but you could use any colours of background squares, as long as it was fairly monochromatic.ReplyDelete
Great use of triangles! You are giving me ideas!ReplyDelete
I love it, you know I too love this group of colours. I love the variation in the neutrals, that adds just the best touch.ReplyDelete
I love where this is going!ReplyDelete
Thanks for a great idea what to do with those poor triangles! I just love your project.ReplyDelete
I see sea glass too. Beautiful colours.ReplyDelete
Oh my, I love this. My absolutely favorite colors. Love it with the neutrals you used! May have to sneak it out of your place when I am in Van......ReplyDelete
