Super thank you to everyone who commented yesterday! I'm definitely fired up to start filming the DVD and if I don't manage to talk about EVERYTHING in the beginner dvd, I will elaborate more in the next one.
So I'm off to start filming, but before I go, let's learn this awesome new filler stitch: Trippy Triangles!
I really couldn't think of a better name for this design. Maybe I was running low on creative juice that day or something, but Trippy Triangle just jumped into my head and I couldn't dislodge it.
Inspiration - I was looking back at Triangle Mosaic and really wanted another, more free form triangle design.
Difficulty Level - Beginner. We all know what a triangle is shaped like, right? That makes this super easy to quilt no matter if you're just getting started!
Design Family - Echoing.
Filler Design Type - Echo. This design is similar to Echo Shell, but instead of a random number of echos, I choose to echo the triangle shape 1 time consistently throughout the design.
This design will work pretty easily over any area of your quilt, even around complicated motifs.
Directional Texture - No direction. This design is very dense and doesn't encourage your eyes to move in any particular direction. Trippy Triangles will be a terrific background design.
Suggestions for Use - I definitely think Trippy Triangles can be used ANYWHERE on a quilt. You can make it big to cover large areas of the quilt or you can make it small to act more like a filler.
I really wish I'd tried this design in the Winter Wonderland Quilt! It would have been perfect with the snowflake blocks.
