This quilt is a "Work in Progress" (WIP), but I wanted to share pictures. When I started out on my turquoise kick, I knew I wanted to make a chevron quilt, but I also had a few more designs that I wanted to try out. I had seen this quilt by Susan Weinroth and decided it would be easy to use left over half-square triangle (HST) blocks from the chevron quilt to make my next quilt.
As I began layout out my blocks, I decided that there was too much variation in the fabrics (too much white) to allow the quilt to have the same level of saturation as the inspiration quilt. Around the same time, I also discovered Jeni Baker's "Warm Cool Quilt Along" from 2010. She had created patterns in her quilt using warm vs. cool colors, and I started to play around using white vs. color in my quilt. I settled on this layout and am very happy with it now.
I chose lots of fun prints for this quilt. Note: the Les Amis turtle print (shown above in the upper left corner) was the original inspiration for doing a turquoise/teal/gray quilt.
The quilt top is now completed and I'm just waiting on some backing fabric to arrive: Ana Davis' Spring Promise Buds in turquoise (shown below on the right).
