Triangle Dance

In my ongoing effort to use up the fabrics in my stash, I've been looking at it and trying to figure out what I have the most of, and then how to use it in an interesting way. That was what got me started with the Petals quilt.

 This is the next project, one I am tentatively calling "The Triangle Dance."

When I looked at my stash, I notice my "Black and" fabrics were taking up a lot of room. These are the fabrics with a black background. Those were going to be next on my list. But how?

As usual, serendipity intervened, and I received this book from my good friend Julie.

Browsing through it, I saw this quilt. Yes, the photo is fuzzy, but you get the idea. I thought "Oooo! I like that!"

So I spent the evening cutting long rectangles of these Black with Colors fabrics. Each stack has 10 rectangles, which is a hell of a lot more than I need, but what the heck!

Looking back at the stash, I knew the "White Ands," would be the perfect foil for the Blacks, so I have been cutting rectangles of those. I just got started.

I have a lot more to cut.

So here's how this is going to work.

Yeah. Like that's hard. (Not!)  Oh, this is going to be so much fun.

Oh, that looks like fun! And oh my, you have a lot of fabric to cut!

I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of Gwen's new book!

Gwen Marston has been busy again! Looking forward to getting my hands on that book and seeing how your quilt progresses.
