TGIFF! - Colour Pop Top

Welcome to TGIFF! I seem to be suffering from work-in-progress-itis. I'm making good progress on several projects, but nothing is close to being completely finished. Carsick and Bubbles for Malcolm are even halfway quilted.

I did finish my Colour Pop top though, just in time for TGIFF! Woo hoo! And also in time for International Left-Handers Day. Serendipitous. As a southpaw, I always appreciate a little asymmetry that leans to the left. ;)

Perhaps more interestingly, all prints. Not a solid to be found. It's all black and white and rainbow. And I love it. I still love my solids though.

These are combinations of 1.5", 2.5" and 8" triangles using the HexNMore ruler. I like big triangles and I cannot lie.


From one purple...


To the other.



The top finishes at 52" x 77". It's going to be a good-sized throw quilt.

Now that this one is off the design wall, I have space for my Meadow quilt that I started last weekend at a workshop with Lizzy House. More to come on that soon...and yes, there will be more rainbow. We'll just call it my rainbow phase.

And speaking of rainbows, the Sew Sisters Quilt Shop deal of the month for August is...wait for it... 40% off rainbow Wonderclips. Seriously, I couldn't have lined this up better if I tried. 50 count pack for $26.39. With the Canadian dollar doing so crappy, this is a steal for you U.S. folks. I have a pack of these Wonderclips (and a pack of red and a pack of neon green) and I adore them.

  2. I absolutely love this- no solids seems like the perfect choice as all these prints work so well together.

  4. I love a good rainbow and this is lovely. I am seriously impressed with your black and white collection!! Also happy lefty day from one to another. Is it bad that I was secretly gutted that both my kids are right handed?

  11. So interesting! I love what you did. I keep wanting to do an asymmetrical quilt. And I have a triangle quilt on my to do list, one that is NOT Stack 'n Whack (did several of those!) I have lots of black and white fabric...might have to do something like this. :-) Thanks for the inspiration!
