The Mahone Bay Quilters Guild hosted a workshop by Marianne Hatton in 2013. The workshop was open to non-guild members, so I decided to register. The day-long workshop was entitled: It Takes Two...Triangles that is.
I should known it would end up being an interesting day when I spent most of the hour-long drive to Mahone Bay in complete fog. It was so foggy that I missed the exit to get onto the highway -- I could barely see in front of me. The fog didn't lift until shortly before before Mahone Bay -- when I looked in the rear view mirror and saw a huge 18-wheeler directly behind me. I hit the gas pedal so hard, I thought my foot would go through the floor.
The requirement was for 12 fabrics: 6 of two different colours, in a range from very light to very dark. The workshop was an exploration in design options and colour interaction.
Each fabric was cut into 6 large triangles and 30 small triangles. Purple and green were my two colours. The large triangle and 5 small triangles of purple fabric #1 were paired with each large triangle and 5 small triangles of the 6 green fabrics. Then the large triangle and 5 small triangles of purple fabric #2 were paired with each of the green fabrics. And so on until all 6 purple fabrics were paired with all 6 green fabrics.
I added borders in an attempt to make this poor quilt work...it was not a success. It sits in the pile as I have no clue what to do with it.
Even in the shadows, it's still ugly.
You've now seen the good and the ugly of my Throwback Thursday quilts. Now to find a bad one to showcase.
Make sure to stop by to see Jenn @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge to see all the Throwback Thursday quilts.
