Long time ago when CM founded New Friends Quilt Circle one of her goals was to not only have fun and make friends but to learn the art of quiltmaking and improve our skills. C and I have talked bout how much we like 60 degree designs and finally we have been able to work in creating and perfecting those types of designs. It of course has the dreaded "Y" seams and many a quilter shys away from them because they aren't the usual straight line sewing using squares and rectangles.We were assigned to bring 3 strips of bright solid or tone on tone fabrics and C gave us the low down on how to turn those into diamonds, triangles to create this great beginning for a quilt. C and I picked out the dots (or spots as some say) in black and white and then added the tone on tone black knowing that the brights would work well together. Doesn't the black slow the busy-ness of the dots and colors?
