This Way and That

 Name:  This Way and That
Design:  Layout and setting triangles, mine
Size:  approx  26" by 26"
Fabric:  Kona Slate, Print from Comma and Sugar Pop, Kona Pomegranate, Anna Maria Horner and Art Gallery scraps
Binding: Kona Slate and Print from Sugar Pop line for Moda
Quilted: by me with Aurifil 40 wt in 5015, Aurifil 40 wt in 2605 and 2309


I had a lot of fun with this one.  It a mini and I will submit it for the Creative Stitches Modern Mini Challenge at Tradex in Abbotsford this month  I used the paper pieced block from Amy Ellis at Amy's Creative side and then placed the blocks on point.  What really made it for me was using the setting triangles in Kona Slate and in the Sugar Pop print in that lovely bright chartreuse. The binding echoed the setting triangles.

I used three different Aurifil threads in the quilting, a yellow-green 40 weight, 5015, a grey 50 wt, 2605 and a cream 50 wt, 2309.  The quilting was fun.  It is a combination of free motion and straight line quilting. This way and that.  I like it!

So what modern theme does this mini reflect?

  1. Alternate block settings? Whatever the theme you've done a brilliant job. That's a lot of pointy, tiny paper piecing and I love the diagonal created by the setting triangle fabrics! Hope to see it in person!
