I have been busy working with very bright and intense colors in some of my quilts during this gray and rainy summer. I will soon finish my third Shimmering Triangels-quilt made from Jenny Bowker's pattern and I'm happy to tell I've got her permission to give classes using this pattern. My first class will be in August when Söndagsgruppen meets again.
My first two Shimmering Triangels quilts were made from commercial fabrics (Kaffe Fassett Collective) with my homedyed fabrics as alternates and I love them, especially the bigger one, "Shimmer".
But I thought that if I was going to teach a class I had to improve myself as Jenny Bowker's pattern consists of two parts, one using big prints alternating tone-on-tone fabrics and the other one using only big prints. I admit it is a bit silly to make all these quilts using Kaffe Fassett fabrics as you can make lovely ones using other big prints. But he is one of my favorites, how can I resist?
