A New Quilt Design


I've just finished a new quilt design I call CUT GLASS DISHES.

The finished size is 10" x 10" on 18 ct. mono canvas and it uses a really different palette of thread colors - aquas, golds and browns. Here are the thread colors I used, centered around Watercolours 139, "Kelp"....


This design worked up quickly; even though there were lots of little triangles to stitch. But it seemed to stitch up fast - maybe because I like stitching all those little triangles! This time, I even put a zig zag row of triangles on the OUTER border edge, which is something I've been wanting to do on a quilt for the longest time.... and now I have!

Anyway, as much as I love this particular color version, I'm sure this quilt design would look stunning in many other color combinations.

If you want to try it with your own color choicess, please visit my website to order this new CUT GLASS DISHES pattern.

I love the design in general and the colors are wonderful! I'm a little concerned about the outside triangle border and how it will frame up with the jagged edges and all.

Overall, a MUST HAVE.

THANK YOU!!!
