Back to BROWN!!
This is what I am working on now. More pie pieces cut with my Fons and Porter pyramid ruler.
The colors don’t pop out at you and lock onto your eyes as the cranberry and orange ones did. But I am still liking them and am delighted to use up some of my fabric stash.
So far, I have enough wedges cut to make something. But what? A quilt? Not sure yet. When I first started, the plan was to make placemats and make them interchangeable. Using different sets of fabrics. This is the first set.
If I don’t get bored, I will probably see what else I can come up with to go with them. Maybe using some of these fabrics you see here in this photo.
To me this is the fun part. Gather up a bunch of fabrics. Mix and match. Add, subtract, replace. Start off with a blank surface and fill it with different designs, shapes and colors.
After sewing the strips and cutting the pyramids, I got an unexpected surprise. See the brown and turquoise floral in the middle?
It wasn’t my plan for them to line up next to each other. 😦
Now, when I sew the wedges together I have to match up the seams. Wasn’t my plan. AT ALL!! Oh well. Wish me luck getting them all lined up.
