Okay, laugh, all you perfect piecers!
I thought it would be interesting to try a lay-out a bit more complex than the simple 9 patch I have been using for these little quilts. But as soon as I got into triangles I remembered quickly why I love the randomness of crazy piecing. Humph!
But it gave me a chance to use my nifty new seam-ripper, which was recommended to me by Willa Fuller after it had been recommended to her by the great Carole Samples herself. It is fabulous, and I did need it.
Even so my corner points got nipped off. I am thinking I will go back to 9 patches!
Anyway, I sewed up my two different sets of print outs to see which one I liked best. I actually won't really know which one I prefer until I "work them up" with machine quilting and some handwork too.
In the meantime, here they are:
Here is the silk satin one. I am so glad my seams are going to be hidden by embellishment. Sheesh! What lace and trim can't cure....
Here is the silk broadcloth with the pastels, and to my big surprise I like this one better, at least so far. Maybe it is that little "human touch" of the hand-drawn lines...it makes the image a little more intriguing.
This was a fun puzzle.....
